Suomenlinna is a unique island and a popular picnic place just outside of the city center. "Suomenlinna" literally means "the castle of Finland", and it used to be an important fortress when Finland was still a part of Swedish kingdom. There is a ferry that goes there very often from Kauppatori (Helsinki's main seaside market square) and you can use the same ticket that you use for public transportation or purchase a ticket for cheap from where the ferry leaves.
