Lasaretinsaari Island has seen many different stages over the course of centuries. It has served as the Crown’s distillery (1776-1791), the governor’s residence (1791-1834), the county hospital (1834-1939) and a military hospital (1939-1999). The island has had many different names depending on its use: Rysänsaari, Polttimosaari, Maaherransaari and now Lasaretinsaari.

The cultural and historical value of Lasaretinsaari Island is further enhanced by the dignitaries who have visited along the years, such as Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden and Alexander I of Russia. Finnish presidents K. J. Ståhlberg and Martti Ahtisaari have lived on the island in their youth. Other interesting individuals, such as Johan “Nukuttaja” Näyhä and Naima Kurvinen, bring additional colour to the history of the island.

The culturally and historically valuable and fully restored area of Lasaretinsaari Island was granted the Environmental Construction of the Year award in 2005 as a recognition of its versatile, high-quality environmental planning and construction. The award was granted by the Finnish Garden Association and the construction product industry of the Confederation of Finnish Industries RT.
