Introducing Sund

Sund, just east of the main island group and connected to Saltvik by bridge, is Åland’s very own action hero. As well as having a muscular medieval castle and the big guns of the open-air museum, it’s got its battle scars in the ruins of a Russian stronghold.

Sund is just 30km from Mariehamn, which makes it an easy half-day trip by car or, if you’re cycling, an excellent place to stay overnight. Finby is the largest town, with all services.
