Photographer's Note

Hδme Castle (Hδmeen linna in Finnish) is a medieval castle in Hδmeenlinna, Finland.

Origins of the castle date to 1300's although there are few remaining documents of that era. The castle was economic and political centre of Hδme region and town of Hδmeenlinna was founded in 1639. Defensive systems of the castle were upgraded in the 18th century with bastions around the castle. It became a prison in the 19th century and served as such until 1953, when massive restoration work started. The castle has been a museum since 1988.
