I really appreciate the photos, so it always feels bad when I start complaining… however:
käytäväsivut = appr. ‘sides of the passage’. ‘Sivu’ isn’t really good, unless you want to say that something is on the side of a passage, i.e. on the walls of a passage or besides the passage. If you want to say that here are the walls of a passage the best way is imo “käytävän seinät”.
or, if you really meant just the doorway:
doorway = oviaukko –> Oviaukko Suomenlinnassa.
And don’t worry, even I had to ask my mum for help with this 😉
thanks for the correction. i was hoping i’d figured out a little bit of finnish, but alas ..
