The Eckero Post Och Tullhus building is very impressive. It rules the landscape but it's very beautiful. There is changing exhibitions and a small shop indoors.
Next to the main building is a side building where is a Kafé Kalesch.

There is also some kind of a memorial stone by the waterfront; it has nice carvings.

This museum has some interesting art work. Certainly the exterior of the museum is imposing and beautiful. But there is nothing about the post office or customs house. Even a small exhibit would have been enlightening.

A German grown architect Carl Ludwig Engel once draw this stylish building to be the most westward showcase of Russian empire once stretched from here too all the way to Alaska.

There isn't much to see except this building and two information boards. One can find much more info about that special postal line in an exhibition on Jan Karlsgården open air museum near Kastelholm castle.

A special memory stone for the postal route is situated close on the cliffs near the water line.

The exhibition of the post and customs house was closed and the only part open was an exhibition of crafts from different islands on the Baltic sea. Surprisingly interesting actually and I really enjoyed it, even though it's totally not my cup of tea. There's a small shop with handmade souvenirs and a cafe that only serves one thing...

Beautiful designed old building. Strange with such a large building, so fancy, so spacious, for a Postal and Customs House "in the middle of knowwhere"... but a political statement from the time egen Åland and Finland where under russian and the Tsar's occupation.

There was a truly wonderful exhibition at this summer 2018. Of design & handicrafts of Åland.

Do visit and enjoy the cafe, Tsarevna.
