The night walk took around 4 hours, from 23.00 to 03.00.
I’m happy to share with you a beautiful snow covered Helsinki. Enjoy the scenery!

Perhaps the most popular places in Helsinki. Esplanadi Park, Market & Senate Square.
Standing in the middle of the park is the statue of Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877), Finland’s national poet and author of the Finnish national anthem. Sculpted by his own son, Walter Runeberg.
A beautiful combination of colours reflecting onto the snow. A magical walk it turns out to be.
As we slowly make our way towards the historic center of Helsinki.
The picturesque street of Sofiankatu will take us to the Senate Square.
Where the imposing Helsinki Cathedral stands high and proud.
Ending scene 01 in the beautiful Katariinankatu street.

Or sometimes called “Plague Park” as over a thousand victims of the 1710 plague are buried next to the park. The park itself was a cemetery from the 1780s until the construction of the Old Church (Est.1826).
Some 40 gravestones and memorials are the remains of the cemetery.
A certain aura emits within this park, it’s hard to describe. Perhaps a reminisce of old.

Or “Ulla’s Castle” is the southernmost district of Central Helsinki. Known for its numerous parks and prestigious properties, mainly built in Art Nouveau style. A home to over 10.000 residents.
The name refers to the fortification line that was built during the 18th century. The name Ulla refers to the Swedish Queen Ulrika Eleonora (1688-1741).
During the 19th century the area was dominated by summer pavilions owned by the wealthy middle-classes.
The Finnish television soap Salatut elämät (Secret Lives) was filmed in Ullanlinna, with over 4,000 episodes making it the longest running in the Nordics.

Still in Ullanlinna, in the middle of busy streets, old large trees create an atmosphere in this park.
It’s not very big and why should it be? There is something to do for children and adults alike.

A street north of Mountain men’s park, perhaps the most notable here is residence 35, Vladimir Lenin’s stay in the spring of 1906.
At the end of the street stands a unique rounded edge building, the Flatiron House of Helsinki. Based on the famous Flatiron Building in New York.
The building makes an appearance in the Finnish romantic comedy Kuutamolla (2002).
As you can imagine, this is a very expensive but beautiful area in Ullanlinna.

We end the walk in this large but lovely Hesperia Park located inside Töölö district.
Within the park lays the Töölönlahti Bay, which connects to the open sea via a strait.
Gradually born over 200 years and has preserved themes from different eras.
A 2,2 km path circles the bay and inside the park. A popular leisure location in summer.
