Helsinki covered by snow / Helsinki cubierto de nieve / Helsinki sous la neige

In English:

Last year in January 2010 also I presented also snowy Helsinki, but now the same Helsinki is so different.

En Español:

Año pasado 2010 presentó también Helsinki cubierto de nieve, pero ahora mismo Helsinki es tan diferente.

En français:

L’année dernier 2010, j’ai présenté aussi sous la neige, mais maintenant même Helsinki est si différent.

  1. Wow! We have trees lit up with little lights,as do many cities these days, but NOTHING to compare with your last photos! The snow on the blue car looks like a Mohawk haircut LOL! Has someone put orange scarves around two of the three naked statue figures?… and the guys working to clear snow off the roof, I couldn’t do their job at all, no head for heights.(Probably my Dutch genes, we like Flat LOL) Another excellent series of photos and wonderful to see everyday Helsinki, people cleaning snow off their cars and doing everyday things, heavy snow weather or not. Thanks!!!

    • Hi kiwidutch.

      So nice to read that You liked my photos. I took them before Christmas as You could see that people where selling Christmas trees in photos 14 & 15. Yes orange scarves around the necks of blacksmiths, really. That statue is famous in Helsinki and it is called three blacksmiths. Another famous statue in Helsinki is in photo number 5. It is Havis Amanda. On May Day is gets her huge undergraduate hat and then there are great festivities in Helsinki.

      I remind that when to know easily the number of my photos, then just move mouse pointer over a photo and the popup tells it.

      Thank You very much from Your lovely comment.

  3. I find it amazing you have so much snow and at the same time the folks drive such small cars. Here in Kansas folks drive really huge four wheel drive trucks. Then again your streets look so narrow with the way the snow is plowed it may be hard to navigate the larger vehicles.

    Comment by Preston — January 14, 2011 @ 20:27 | Reply

    • Hi Preston.

      Thank You for Your visit. You are right when saying that some of our streets are narrow, but not all. Helsinki was founded in 1550 and then they did not plan wide streets.🙂 The problem is culminating how to keep streets open for traffic and at same time to remove snow. Most bad that problem is on the streets where streetcars / trams are operating.

      This was the second winter successively with so much snow. In many cities of Finland snow removers “are smiling” to Helsinki’s attempt to remove snow fast. That is why because they have bought an incredible fast snow remover, but Helsinki not. I saw in our television this machine in work and it was fast and efficient. Well, let’s see what next winter brings with.

      Here is the video from this Finnish made “miracle” machine which I saw in our television. Select from the list the first video AM 2500 Snow Loader and get surprised. It lasts 2minutes and 42 seconds:

      Arctic super fast snow remover

      The reason to that people are driving small cars is the prize, thanks to taxes. Well, that’s a pity. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Helsinki sous la neige est magnifique ! Je l´ai vu mais ne me rappelle plus que c´était si beau. Des montagnes de neige ! Le port est irréel sous la neige. J´adore la terrasse qui attend le printemps… et les clients. Une très belle série de cette si belle ville en toutes saisons. Bonne fin de semaine, Mattis. Une question : Havis Amanda, c´est aussi un restaurant de poisson, non ?

    • Bonjour Isa.

      Merci beaucoup. Havis Amanda est la statue Dame dans photo numero cinq. Autrefoisl y avait aussi un restaurant de poissons avec le même nom. Aujourd’hui, il est appelé Havis et il n’est pas bon marché, mais restaurant avec la qualité. Bonne fin de semaine.

  5. That’s really a lot of snow. I like the photos of the boat with the snowy white back drop.

    • Hello Tammy.

      Thank You commenting. Actually I love it too. I am fond of boats, but not only big ones, but small too. It was looking so endearing in harbor among ice, that I took many photos from it. Happy weekend.

  6. WOW Matti – it seems like you got much snow in Finland now too! That blue car – it must be difficult to drive😉 – Nice creative lights in the trees – they are very artistic and beautiful, and I like that they did not use colored but just white lamps. Great post!

    Comment by truels — January 15, 2011 @ 01:29 | Reply

    • Hello Truels.

      Thank You. Yes, snow enough. Officially the max amount the snow was 68 centimeters / 27 inches by the Finnish Meteorological Institute’s info. Those cars under snow blanket seem to be in a way funny, because their owners have not removed snow. Maybe they are on travel. BTW, Helsinki-Vantaa airport has been open all the time as every winter. At Helsinki-Vantaa airport those snow removal machines are awesome. Think if they had got them for example to London, then no closures and people could have made their air travel!!!

      Happy weekend.

  7. Great photos! The little blue car looks like it is being swallowed up by a giant snow marshmallow. Do those little cars have 4 wheel drive? I’m trying to imagine driving in all that snow without 4 wheel drive. I’d be lost without it and we rarely get that much snow in this part of Michigan.

    Comment by kateri — January 15, 2011 @ 06:08 | Reply

    • Hi Kateri.

      The amount of 4 wheel drive cars is increasing slowly. What is here good combination, if one do not own 4 wheel drive, is to have front wheel drive and good winter tires. Our winter tires are good really, that’s the fact. My car is front wheel drive, but my next car will be4 wheel drive. That is due that we are planning to make more car travel trips to Lapland which is beyond the Arctic Circle. Happy weekend.

Merci de me faire découvrir ta capitale sous un aspect différent pour moi qui suis venue au mois d’août… Tes photos sont superbes en particulier les photos de nuit.

    • Hello Tamara.

      Thank You commenting my post about snowy Helsinki. It was so nice to read that You are not afraid of snow. Cold, winter, snow and ice, they are always a matter of how to dress. That is just the point! Usually we use so called “layer” dressing. That means it, that one can add clothes easily and also remove them according to the prevailing temperature. Welcome!

      Have a wonderful day!

  13. It’s indeed very different!
    The same cathedral looks so different in day and at night.
    But I have to admit the night view is more attractive, maybe it’s because of the lights.

    Those statues looks so funny in snow!
    As if they’re wearing a cone.

    And that’s a lot of snow in Finland!!!😉

  15. Wow, you’ve had a lot of snow, much more than we have here! I enjoyed seeing the photos so much! Somehow I missed this post until today and I’m glad that now I saw it. Here we had snow like that last in 1996, except of course in the higher mountain areas. I can just imagine what it takes for a city of that size to contend with that weather. Just keeping the snow load from damaging the roofs must be a major task!

    • Hi Montucky.

      I am so glad when You visited here and saw how “my Helsinki” is looking like. Yes, roofs and a heavy wet snow load are not good combination. Last winter it happened some collapses, but not on dwelling houses, but on industrial houses. What comes to enactments concerning detached houses (as mine), they are very strict on planning level. Thank You for Your nice comment.

      Have a nice day!

  19. Good evening Matti,
    All photos are interesting and very beautiful. So much snow is a problem for the traffic. Once in our region, at intervals, snow-clearing vehicles through the streets. However, some side streets are not cleared free. It is interesting in Figure 3, the high wall of snow along the road and the snow-covered cars in the pictures 34 to 37 The white church in Figures 16 and 17 is a beautiful focal point in the city. I am glad that I could admire the church in the previous series in evening light. I like the ship in the pictures 6/8/9/10. I think it is very cozy inside. Figure 7 is missing. The close up in Figure 13 is also interesting. In images 40 to 44, I like the blue Christmas lights in the trees. The pictures of the view are interesting. There are evocative images that invite for a stroll. The architecture of the houses, including the tram tracks are similar to our city in Cologne. Pictures of 2010, I looked at again to see the difference. The white beauty of the trees looks fantastic. I thank you for allowing me to watch this series and look forward to the next. Thank you for all the nice comments. We wish you and Anja, all the best and health on your common everyday ways.
    Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

  20. Guten morgen Christel.

    Thank You for Your nice and detailed comment. About number 7. Sometimes it happens that the photo is not loading. Usually it helps when clicking it. Why this happens now and then, I have no explanation.

    I explain the photo 12 and 13. In the photos 12 there is an obelisk which is the oldest monument in Helsinki. Again, as in some of my previous post explained about famous architect Carl Ludvig Engel, so this one was created by him. The obelisk (Stone of Empress) is honoring Aleksandra Fjodorovna’s visit (May 29th, 1833) to Helsinki. Aleksandra Fjodorovna was the wife of Nikolai the Emperor of Russia who lived from 1825 to 1855. The two headed eagle in photo 13, at the top of obelisk is the emblem of the Russian heraldry. Helsinki might be an interesting place to them who loves “East meets West” things, memorials, buildings, art etc.

    What delights me very much, that You took a look at my Helsinki in winter 2010 photos and so You got a comparison between 2010 and 2011.

    Have a wonderful Day!

  21. I love this photo collections very much!!! The colours, buildings, so much details and snow are fabulous, excellently captured and recorded. *we don’t have snowfall in Singapore and it’s really wonderful to be able to feel the winter season here in this page, I’ve read and seen on TV the heavy snow in Europe this year, and probably a little chaotic in traffic conditions and so on..but it’s nice feeling for me viewing it…thank you very much!

      You are so right that “sometimes” there have been really problems with traffic. Winter is in fact funny thing. It changes very much that one is used to see during summer and at same time it hides something ugly.

  23. Helsinki is really a beautiful city and even more so in the snow. Those blue lights on the trees are absolutely fabulous. I would love to take a walk through the square there. What is the person in photo 24 selling? It is so good to see people carrying on their daily lives despite all that snow. And you have tram cars that help a lot in the city.
    I loved the videos of the snow blower, blowing all the snow into the trucks and the clearing of the runways at the airport, with planes still landing. My son didn’t get to Heathrow at Christmas, due to a couple of inches of snow!
    Like everyone else, I loved the photo of the little blue car – that’s a prize winner!

    • Hi Jackie.

      Thank You so much for Your visit and comment.

      Well, in photo 24, nobody is selling anything. It is in my country a habit that Salvation Army is collecting money or clothes to the poor. Every year Christmas pots are coming to many cities and town in my countries. If one is giving clothes, then they must be washed and ironed of course. Salvation Army is very reliable in my country to help poor people.

      I am delighted also that You saw the video of snow blower.

      Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  24. Beautiful photos. My neighbours are housesitting for their son and his wife who are in Helsinki now, along with their 2 dogs. I’m told their dogs really love the snow. No snow here in Seattle. Temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s Fahrenheit.
