The Vesikko is a veteran of the Second World War, the submarine is one of Suomenlinna’s most popular sights. Launched in Turku in 1933, it was originally commissioned by the German Navy, who took the vessel for test runs in Airisto off Turku. The Finnish Navy purchased the submarine in 1936 and named it Vesikko. During the Winter War and Continuation War, Vesikko saw action in convoys and on protection and patrol duty in the Gulf of Finland. The submarine base was located in the shipyard section of Suomenlinna. The Treaty of Paris (1947) forbade Finland from having military submarines, and the fleet was decommissioned and sold for scrap with the exception of Vesikko, which was put in dry dock.
