Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The construction of Loviisan Linnake (Loviisa Fortress, bastions Ungern and Rosen) started in 1748. Nowadays Ungern is in better condition. The restoration of Rosen has also started. There are interesting plants around Rosen, e.g. introduces species (non-indigenous species, alien species) like war adventives and traffic adventives.

There isn't very much to see in these bastions. If you only want to see them, it takes 10 minutes. However, I recommend that you walk along Ehrenvärd's Trail. The path is 2 kilometres long and there are information boards about the history of the fortress on the route. Texts are in Finnish, Swedish and English.

It is easy to visit these bastions. You can walk there from the city center of Loviisa (the distance from the church of Loviisa is about one kilometre) or you can drive your car next to these bastions (write "Ungernin pysäköintipaikka" in your navigator). There isn't any admission fee and these bastions are open 24/7.

Old road between viipuri and Turku went between these two fortress. The other fortress is restored, while the other is just protected to prevent further damages.You can feel here the old world when this kind of place was needed to protect people and towns.

As eastern border of Sweden moved westward in 18th century, there was need to build new border fortress and 1748 work was started. It was not completed before russians took it over 1808 and become useless.
After that it started to collapse until end of 19th century its historical value was acknowledged. Renovations started only in 1960s and completed in 90s.
Nowadays I can recommend to take a walk around it and feel history, especially if you don't have a chance to take a trip to Svartholm sea fortress.

Let’s be honest, there is not much left from the fortress except few walls. Abandoned 2 centuries ago, it has been used as a recreative and pleasure park.
Worth to walk through if the weather allows it.

Ruins of two bastions just a short way from the centre of Loviisa. Nice place for a picnic during the summer. This time we didn't have time to visit the Svartholm sea fortress, so we had to settle for these smaller examples from the same period.

Your basic castle ruin but we had a lovely picnic here, bet it's fab for the theater they hold here in summer! We did a walking loop from the central green to the fortress ruin, down past the marina to the beach and back through the forest on the ridge which was really beautiful and peaceful in the afternoon sun. At the southern end of the forest there is a spectacular 3-story lookout platform. Lovely views from there!
