This forms a consistent ensemble extensive enough to preserve and present the values of the property.
Most of the fortifications and utilitarian buildings dating from the Swedish and Russian periods are well preserved.
In 1747, toen Finland deel uitmaakte van het Zweedse rijk, besloot men om een fort te bouwen als belangrijkste basis voor de strijdkrachten in Finland .
The fortification works are protected by the Ancient Act of 1963 and the church is protected by the Church Act of 1994.
The purpose of the fortress was originally to defend the Kingdom of Sweden against the Russian Empire and to serve as a fortified army base, complete with a dry dock.
Sandbanks, barracks and various other buildings were added during the 19th-century Russian period.
The military role of the fortress declined after World War II, and in 1973 the area was converted for civilian purposes.
Since then, buildings have been renovated to serve as apartments as well as workspaces, to house private and public services, and for cultural purposes.
The fortress has only a few buildings dating from the Finnish era, but they retain their own distinctive identity.
