By the way what "Suomenlinna" means ? Is it something like the men of the sea's land ? !

It means "castle of Finland", but there' no castle in Suomenlinna, it's an old sea fortress.

What do you mean by "sea fortress" ? What in the word means castle and what stands for "Finland" ? "Suomenlinna" sounds to me like an old and sweet song...

Suomenlinna was built during the Swedish era as a maritime fortress and a base for the Archipelago Fleet. Work on the fortress was begun in the mid-18th century. The word "Suomen" means "Finland's" and "linna" means "castle".

Thanks for this very detailed explanation. Is the word "Suomen" used in other geographical names all around Finland or only in specific areas like that one ? Sea fortress were dedicated to soldiers only or was there a kind of Lord at their head just like of the one notably in France during the Middle-Age(châteaux forts) ?

The word "Suomen" is used e.g. in the name of the Gulf of Finland, "Suomenlahti".
The construction of Suomenlinna sea fortress (originally named Sveaborg) began in 1748 and after that the fortress has been used in many wars. Nowadays it's a tourist attraction and a picnic place. UNESCO has accepted Suomenlinna for the World Heritage List in 1991.

All this sounds so mysterious to me and fascinating... Vauban fortresses are also part of UNESCO-inscribed sites.
Do you know where Suomen were coming from and when they arrived in Finland and why? South east ? Do you know when the oldest human people were attested in Finland ? How many different people nowadays count among the Finland people ? Is "sveaborg" a swedish word ? Sorry to ask all those questions, I hope I don't bother you...
Have a quiet and peaceful evening. :)

I don't know from where the people came to Finland, but it was after the ice age. Perhaps they came from the east and south. Yes, "Sveaborg" is a swedish word.
Thanks, have a nice day you too.

Wow. It really is stunning, what with all the shades of color, and the sky looking so... powerful, I guess. I honestly don't know how to describe how wonderful this photo is, but you've once again caught a truly beautiful sight.
