The Czarina of Russia, Dagmar, enjoyed the Källviken spring and surrounding marine environment of Tammisaari at the end of the 19th century. That's why Källviken is now called Dagmar Park. Visitors can get a marvellous view of the seascape from the rock formations around the spring, where there is a memorial stone commemorating Czar Alexander III and his fiancée Princess Dagmar of Denmark and, naturally, the soothing sound of a burbling spring. Spend a day on the beach sunbathing or gaze out at the sea from the rocky shoreline. Go for a brisk hike through the aromatic pine forest on easy trails together with your family or arrive by boat for a romantic outing, much like the Czar and Czarina did.
