Exhibition

Fateful Svensksund

The exhibition is a never-before-seen dive into the Svensksund naval battles, the largest ever in the Baltic Sea, fought just off the coast of Kotka. The exhibition will also tell the story of the forgotten fortress city built in the aftermath of the conflict.

This seemingly insignificant border location acted as the stage for a clash between the two great powers of Imperial Russia and the Kingdom of Sweden. Follow the intertwined fates of thousands of sailors, soldiers and ordinary people and marvel at the stories of remarkably well preserved shipwrecks and a thriving naval fortress. Discover for yourself how the events and people of the 1790s also reflect our own times. Experience the Maritime Centre Vellamo’s most impressive and influential exhibition yet!

Fateful Svensksund opens on the 20th of May 2020, and is produced by the Maritime Museum of Finland and the Kymenlaakso Museum.
