Summer guards often meet people with grills and tell them to stop barbecuing, instructing them how to put out their charcoal grills or grill fires properly.

the release mentioned that there are many other opportunities for culinary pleasures in Suomenlinna. Visitors can enjoy the offerings of the many cafés and restaurants of the islands, and they can bring types of picnics other than barbecue.
