Among other destinations in southern Finland, Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel will tour the eastern Uusimaa town of Loviisa on Thursday afternoon, during their two-day visit to the country.

On Thursday morning, the couple visited the fortress island Suomenlinna, arriving by a naval transport vessel.

Later in the morning, the royals visited the Swedish-speaking Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki as well as the sweets and food products firm Fazer's Experience Visitor Centre.

The City of Loviisa noted that the Crown Princess will inaugurate "Victoria Square", located in a new residential area called "Queen's shore."

The trip marked the first visit Victoria has made to Finland since 2017, when she came to celebrate Finland's centennial. Victoria has visited Finland several times throughout the years.

Finland was a part of Sweden for roughly 500 years.
