Russia. The fort was part of Peter the Great’s sea fortress which was built to protect the capital city, St. Petersburg, from an offshore attack. Since Finland’s independence, Örö has served as a coastal fortress of the Finnish Defense Forces until the end of 2014. Örö fortress island offers an interesting cross-section of coastal defense from the time of the tsar to the present day. Historical main attractions include the 12-inch barrack zone and a sturdy coastal battery, the 6-inch barrack zone and a coastal battery, as well as more modern defense stations across the island.
