  1. AWESOME pictures, as usual. In some places, this sea side tour of Helinski almost reminds me of the liverpool docks, though they are not as accessible as it seems to be here

  2. That wan’t a short walk. Katajanokka, Pohjoisranta and Eira all in one.
    I also recognize the red boat you have seen on my blog.

    • Hi Hpy.

      It was not a short walk indeed, but it was many walks during many years. My sets of photos are varying from 2006 until this year. Helsinki seaside is beautiful to take strolls and enjoy the feeling that Helsinki a seaside city. Yeah, I saw that red boat in Your blog. If I am right it is a restaurant boat.

      Happy Friday!

    • Muchas gracias por tu comentario. Este serie, presentando Helsinki, continua hasta la Navidad. Desde el año nuevo comenzo la serie, que narra acerca nuestra viaje a más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico. ¿Interesante?

      ¡Feliz fin de semana!

  4. Thank you for a fascinating nautical post. I really enjoyed seeing the wide variety of ships and boats. I also found the monument to the Deminers to be interesting. I didn’t realize there were so many mines in Finnish waters.

    • Hi George.

      Thank You. Helsinki has many faces; this was one face. Deminers, oh yeah, we got really huge problem after the war. Well, times have been changed and now it is safety to visit in Helsinki even by big ships.

      Happy week-end!

  6. What a beautiful collection of photos! That’s a beautiful harbor and the boats are fascinating. I love seeing them although I’m not much of a sailor myself.

  8. My gosh. People in your country love, love, love their boats. All sizes. For all purposes, namely fun in the water.

    The water’s sooo blue!

    I really like the areas where folks walk. Most appealing.

    Your photos are so inviting that I was there effortlessly.

    • Hello Deli.

      Thank You for Your visit and comment. In Helsinki one can take a long walk alongside the sea and to relax in many nice summer restaurants or coffee shops and bars.

      Have a wonderful week-end.

  11. I WANT that propeller (or the anchor) on the side of my house! LOL
    HOW COOL are they??? amazing!.. oh and *any* of those boats would be fabulous for a trip too .. aren’t they all gorgeous?
    The Marinas show just how popular boating is, and clearly for good reason.

    Comment by kiwidutch — November 27, 2011 @ 21:46 | Reply

    • Hi Kiwidutch.

      I am glad that You visited my site and found it interesting. The propeller is huge in live. What might be interesting to notice is that in fourth photo there are icebreakers in summer. More photos from are in 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. These photos are old and I have better photos from them in two weeks seen from a cruise ship. Some of our icebreakers have been leased to make trips to Antarctic. Two weeks ago there was news that one of our icebreaker is going to Alaska next summer. Helsinki has many marinas and people make motor boat and sailing boat cruise very frequently.

      Thank You for Your comment and interest to my blog.

      Happy Monday!

  12. Beautiful pictures, whichever language they’re in! I’ve never been to Finland; it looks stunning. I especially like the red houseboat with the flowers outside.
    Thank you for taking the time to write that comment on my blog and so interesting to hear where the name comes from🙂

  14. Ces images nautiques me font rêver de voyages lointains… normal, quand on vient de la montagne ! je suis impressionnée par la variété et les tailles des bateaux. La photo 31 montre un contraste étonnant entre cette maison et le paquebot. Une belle promenade au bord de la mer, merci Matti. Très belles photos.

    • Salut Isa.

      Je suis très heureux que t’as faite une ballade avec moi à travers mes photos. Ce navire est typique qui faire la navette entre Helsinki et Tallinn, Estonie. Nous faisons une fois par année ce trajet court en bateau pour quelques d’achats.

      Je te souhaite une agréable journée!

  15. A nice walk and I love all boats.
    I started publishing my photos from my trip to the Lofoten islands and Vesteralen Norway, if you want to go see them.
    Good day and friendly.

  16. Wow, that’s a huge port!
    The water must be really deep.
    How you know how deep it is?

    Have you been to Liverpool?
    This place looks a bit like Liverpool.

    Comment by London Caller — November 30, 2011 @ 16:33 | Reply

    • Hello London Caller.

      Thank You commenting and asking. The South Harbor which is just in the center is 9.6 meters / 31 feet deep. When approaching the most critical point on the waterway is the Kustaanmiekka strait, with a width of 80 meters / 262 feet.

      From Kustaanmiekka I have photo in

      Fortress of Suomenlinna.

      Take a look at photo 62 and 63.

      There are speed limits of course. The South harbor’s waterway has a speed limit of 30 km/h or 18 miles/h generally speaking, except for the Katajanokka area, which is few meters from the Market Square, its speed limit of 10 km/h or 6 miles/h. There are other ports in Helsinki than this one beside the Market Square. The most new, most modern is in Vuosaari. For example when we go to Germany by ship, we have to leave from the harbor of Vuosaari.

      I have not been in Liverpool.

      Happy Wednesday!
