The Royal Gates lead directly to the sea. They were designed and constructed by Augustin Ehrensvärd in 1752-54. In old times, VIPs should arrive on their ships directly to the gates of the fortress and the guns had fired a salute in their honor. Nowadays there is only a passenger pier for the little steamship from Helsinki.
