Fateful Svensksund

The Museum of Kymenlaakso, Kotka

  • 9.6.2020–

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.


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 Vellamos most impressive and influential exhibition yet!

Fateful Svensksund was produced by the Maritime Museum of Finland and the Kymenlaakso Museum.
