Walking to the harbor / Caminando hacia el puerto / En marchant vers le quai

In English:

Walking to the harbor of the city of Lahti. Lahti (population about 102000) is known better as “winter city”, because there are ski jumping contests every winter. There are three jumping hills side by side. Well, I take You to the tour of harbor in summer. Its harbor is on a bay of the lake called Vesijärvi having cruising boat connections to many cites and towns. From Helsinki Lahti is train takes 50 minutes.

En español:

Caminando hacia el puerto de la ciudad de Lahti. Lahti (población cerca de 102.000) es más conocida como “ciudad de invierno”, porque que hay concursos de saltos de esquí cada invierno. Hay tres colinas de salto lado a lado. Bueno, te llevará a la gira del puerto en verano. Su puerto está en una bahía del lago llamado Vesijärvi con conexiones de cruceros en barco a muchas ciudades y pueblos. Desde Helsinki el viaje en tren a Lahti tarda 50 minutos.

En francais:

En marchant vers le port de la ville de Lahti. Lahti (population environ 102000) est mieux connue comme “ville d’hiver”, parce qu’il ya des concours de saut à ski chaque hiver. Il ya trois tremplins côte à côte. Eh bien, je vous amène à la visite du port en été. Son port est au bord du lac appelé Vesijärvi ayant des connexions de bateaux de croisière vers de nombreux cite et les villes. Le train prends 50 minutes de Helsinki pour Lahti.

  1. What a pleasant walk that is! I really liked the way your photo series began with the fountains: that is like the opening shot of a good movie. It’s a beautiful place and I could spend several pleasant days inspecting and admiring all of the boats in the harbor! You are showing such wonderful insights into your country!

    • Hello Montucky.

      Lahti is beautiful city really. Personally I was amazed that in summer, because it is known as winter city. Also the amount of boats was more than I imagined. We have thousand lakes and cruises on lakes are very popular. Cruises can last from few hours up to few days between different cities / towns and in many cases they pass thru canals.

      If You remember, I have quite good collection of photos from these small and in many cases old ships which run on our lakes:

  5. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country, those first few photos are amazing! I like the paddle steamers – we have one that runs up and down the Hawkesbury river…I’ve never been on it, but it always looks like so much fun!

  6. I’ve always loved looking at harbors/marinas and this is no exception. There is such a variety of ships/boats. Thanks for sharing such lovely photos.

    • Hello Neal.

      I am glad that You gave Your time for visit on my site. You are right, harbors and marinas offer many interesting things and big ships to admire. For example in Helsinki we have heavy boat traffic between Helsinki and Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Germany. When in harbor one can dream to take a trip to somewhere by boat. We visit normally once a year in Tallinn (Estonia) and in Germany every two years. We both love German highways where it is possible to drive fast legally and so we do. In Germany there are big harbors and last year we stayed few days in Kiel which is a harbor town.

      Thank You commenting. Happy Sunday!

  7. A lovely town – in summer! Where are all these ships going to?
    My favorite:
    I love that statue of the man lying in the shallows!

    • Hello Truels.

      These ships are making sightseeing on nearby lake or cruising to other towns. Last summer we were nearby to cruise from Lahti to Jyväskylä via Heinola. It takes all the day. Okay, maybe someday we’ll do it. We have large water network and using it one can travel between many towns onboard old steam boats. Big lake side areas are connected by canals.

      One good example:

      Lake cruises are, although short ones, are very enjoyable. If You took a look on that link when I answered to Convictstock, You noticed that our archipelago on lake area is beautiful.

      Happy Sunday!

    • Hello Christel.

      I am so glad that You visited on my site. Thank You very much. Yes, I read Your letter and will reply to it. I have been busy driving around and photographing for future posts. Today we again visited my father-in-law who is in a hospital. At this moment we are packing, because tomorrow morning we are going to spend two nights in Jyväskylä and having there the Midsummer celebrations. My next post will be next week.

      Happy Thursday!

  14. I am back but I only have temporary internet access at the moment.
    Please bear with me a little more.😉

    I would like to walk in such a lovely wood too!
    The sculpture of the boy in the lake is so funny.🙂

    • Hello London Caller.

      Thank You commenting. I was wondering what has happened, but first I thought that vacations. Well, summer is busy time here to me, because I try to find something interesting to present. Last weekend in Finland we had the summer’s biggest celebration – Midsummer celebration. We made a nice lake cruising in Jyväskylä seeing some Midsummer bonfires although the weather was not so beautiful.

      That statue in the water was at first sight very scary. I thought that somebody was drowned.

      Thank You.
