Street haunting in Helsinki


I had a good day yesterday, wrapped up warm, wandering around Helsinki. Cloudy in the morning with some breaks in the cloud, it turned into a sunny afternoon, clouding over again later in the afternoon. A good day for sightseeing. Here are some of the photos I took.

Regular trams and buses operate throughout the city making getting around really easy. Inexpensive too when you buy one of the “day tickets” – I bought one that will cover the whole of my stayDSC02562

Eira Hospital – one of the many Judenstil buildings in the city

The ext couple of shots (zoomed in) were taken from the top of the Observatory Hill park .DSC02617


The Esplanade


I rather like this attractive little church – the Holy Trinity Orthodox church – just behind the Lutheran cathedral

The Helsinki City Theatre


Time to stop off for a coffee in this cafe on the quayside on the north side of Katajanoka
