Times of woeful joys

The Svensksund sea fortress that thrived just for a while in its era will come to life again. Now destroyed, the Svensksund fortress city of the past will open before your eyes as an interactive scale-model, and the modern, impressive portraits by photographer Elina Simonen will give faces to its residents.

Svensksund is a place that connects the Russian general Alexander Suvorov to merchant Nikolai Sinebrychoff and maid Clara Grönblad.

The exhibition shows and tells you the story of many of the people of the time.
