The submarine museum is interesting and worthwhile to see. One learns more about a way of working and a culture that for most of us is very unknown. The price is a bit high if you do not also want to go to the military...More

It's worth while to walk to the submarine Vesikko. It really was in used during the second world war. And is one of the biggist in use in Finland
