Lonna

This summer visitors to Helsinki will be able to visit a new recreational island destination in the archipelago.

The island Lonna has an interesting history. In the 1880s it was used by the Russian Navy to store mines, in the 1920s it was used as a base for clearing mines, and in the post-war period ships were demagnetised there.

This May a café and restaurant will open on the island. The café will be open daily, and visitors will even be able to purchase ready-packed picnic baskets. The restaurant will be open initially only on weekends, but from mid-June onwards it will also be open on weekdays.

You can get to Lonna in summertime aboard the JT-Line waterbus to Suomenlinna The waterbus departs from the Market Square and stops at Lonna on the way to Suomenlinna.

Helsingin edustalla sijaitseva uusi saarikohde Lonna on avattu yleisölle.

Lonnan saarella on takanaan mielenkiintoinen historia. Saarella on muun muassa 1880-luvulla varastoitu Venäjän armeijan merimiinoja, 1920-luvulla se toimi miinojen raivausasemana ja sotien jälkeen siellä poistettiin laivoista magneettisuutta.

Toukokuussa saareen avautuu muun muassa kahvila ja ravintola. Kahvila on auki joka päivä ja sieltä voi halutessaan ostaa mukaansa piknik-korin. Lonnan ravintola aukeaa ensin vain viikonlopuiksi, mutta kesäkuun puolivälistä alkaen ravintolaa pidetään auki myös arkisin.

Lonnan saarelle pääsee kesäkaudella JT-Linen Suomenlinnan vesibussin L-merkityllä vuorolla. Vesibussi lähtee Kauppatorilta ja pysähtyy Lonnassa menomatkalla Suomenlinnaan.
