Reposaari Fortress

Reposaari Fortress (Reposaaren linnakepuisto) was a coastal defence system built in the 1930s. It was designed to protect the important harbor of Pori against Russian fleet. The stronghold area is about 20 hectares and consists of two gun positions, magazines, dugouts, trenches etc. Wooden buildings have been reconstructed in the 1990-2000s.

During the Winter War Reposaari Fortress eliminated one Russian bomber and heckled several bombing operations. Finnish Defence Forces used the fortress until 1964. Today the area is restored and open to the public.
