The Czarina of Russia, Dagmar, enjoyed the Källviken spring and surrounding marine environment of Tammisaari at the end of the 19th century. 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.
