Viapori Jazz

Top jazz musicians performed most successful melodies of the Second WW from both sides of the Finnish-Russian border in a peaceful unison of Suomenlinna.

Sami Pitkämö and Alisa Manninen were vocalists. Andrei Sinenko played the saxophone, Eerik Siikasaari the bass, Lenni-Kalle Taipale the piano and Rami Eskelinen the drums.











Suomenlinna (Viapori) is a naval fortress on a group of islands at the entrance of Helsinki's harbour. The fortress is an especially interesting example ofvEuropean military architecture. The buildings date mainly from the end of 18thvcentury, the Swedish era, and 19th century Russian era. At the end of Swedish rule the fortress was being compared with the maritime fortifications at Gibraltar. Today Suomenlinna is a UNESCO's World Heritage site.









Suomenlinna is just a 15-minute ferry trip from Helsinki's Market Square.
During the return sail we admired the harmonious silhouette of Empire Helsinki.
