Utö Island photos:
|Utö is a stronghold island, a lot of old and newer bunkers on the island.|
|This helicopter field was also used when M/S Estonia sank, |
many of the survivors and the dead were first taken to the island of Utö.
|These three radars rotate all the time|
|Utö is a marine pilot base too, has been for about 300 years.|
|In the year 1939, the Utö fort battled against two Soviet battleships,|
one of them presumably sank.
Utö was also attacked during the First World War, this time it was battleships
from the Imperial German navy, that attacked Utö in 1915.
|Soldiers left the island a few years ago, but the devices are held in standby mode,|
sometimes these guns are tested, such as in 2011:
|M/V Torsholm ship wreck close to the shoreline of Utö, sank in 1967. |
A lot of ships have sunk in the nearby rocky waters.
|Park Victory commemorative candle holder in Utö Chapel, |
on the candle holder are engraved the names of crew members
who perished in the accident,
SS Park Victory sank on Christmas night 1947.
Every Christmas Eve, the candles are lit in memory of the accident
and the lives that were lost in it.
That window shows to the sinking place.
