Finnish submarine Vesikko and its collection

Finnish submarine Vesikko

The Vesikko is a Finnish submarine, currently used as a museum ship, located on the island fort Suomenlinna in Helsinki. The submarine was built between 1931 and 1933, in the Crichton-Vulcan shipyard in Turku and was commissioned by the Reichsmarine through a German company that "hid" under the Dutch cover company 'NV Ingenieurskantoor voor Scheepsbouw' to circumvent the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles, which stipulated, among other things, that Germany was not allowed to own diving boats. In this devious way, the Germans were able to gain knowledge about submarines that they would use for their fleet in World War II.
