Raseborg Castle ruins

Raseborg Castle served as the administrative center in Western Uusimaa during the medieval period. The history of this royal castle includes thousands of stories with themes ranging from a spellbinding tale of love and the shipwreck of a treasure ship to the collapse of beer cellars and the end of the castle's era of glory.
