Photo Friday: From my past
I lived on a fortress island
A long time ago I lived in this house. It is 250 years old and is called Noah's Ark, because it was in those days Helsinki's only and largest residential building, built for officers and their families. It is on one of the islands that belong to the fortress called Sveaborg (= Viapori or Suomenlinna= Finland's Castle). Today Viapori is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We lived on the first floor. The five windows above the door were our windows.
