The Fateful Svensksund exhibition opens up new perspectives on the destinies of Finns, Swedes and Russians alike in the Russo-Swedish war. The modern portraits of historical persons taken by photographer Elina Simonen add human perspective to history.

The virtual experience was implemented by Zoan Oy in cooperation with the Maritime Museum of Finland, and the production received funding from the Jane and Aatos Erkkos Foundation.
