SUMMER SCHOOL: FUTURE EXPERTISE IN HEALTH SCIENCES
Sunday, 18 August 2024

18.00- Get-together

Feel free to join us for a trip to Suomenlinna fortress which belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage List as a unique monument of military architecture. We will meet at Kauppatori and take a ferry to Suomenlinna. The trip is at your own cost, but the ferry is part of the Helsinki public transportation and easily accessible. In case the weather is not on our side (heavy rain), the trip will be cancelled. Practical information will be sent to those willing to participate in the Suomenlinna trip.
