  1. The coastline near Helsinki is fascinating and beautiful. I really enjoyed the pictures of the fortress as well as the photos of the ships and boats. I would truly enjoy the opportunity to visit your beautiful capital city and the area around it.

    • Hi George.

      All what You wrote was so nice to read. In my next post after one week, we go to the Eastern part. There are icebreakers waiting for winter. Thank You.

      Happy week-end!

  2. I enjoyed your photos as I always do, Matti. What a beautiful coast line! I was especially fascinated by the building in photos 6 and 7 and the massive rock work at the fortress!

    • Hello Montucky.

      Thank You commenting. The building in photos with red roof and tower is summer restaurant called Restaurant Klippan. It can be reached by ferry in less than one minute. It is very popular and famous restaurant.

      Happy weekend!

  3. Wow, the coastline looks amazing🙂 I would like to go there in Summer, but never in Winter lol I don’t like it that cold😉 Have a good weekend🙂

    • Hi Wolke205.

      You are right that summer in Helsinki is Okay for visit. The North most part of Finland which called Lapland is suitable for winter. I have said many times to my friends that I am “child of summer”, but the fact is that it is easy in winter if one is using appropriate clothes.🙂

      Happy Sunday!

    Thank you so much for sharing these gorgeous photos.
    Have a great weekend!

    • Hi Kateri.

      When visiting in Helsinki, the fortress of Suomelinna is a must. Thank You for Your comment and have a wonderful Sunday!

  6. Very beautiful seaside… That fortress and the cruise boat are marvelous ! Helsinki must be a very nice city to visit.
    Have a lovely weekend Matti🙂

    • Bonsoir Tamara.

      I am so glad that You liked my photos. Well, Helsinki has sea here and there and small islands.

      Thank You for commenting.

      Je te souhaite un bon dimanche.

  7. The 3rd photo is so interesting.
    You captured it very well.
    The contrast between the modern cruiser and the steam boat is fascinating.
    Oh, I love Finland.
    You have so much water there – is it right that Finland has more lakes than your population? Ha!😉

    Comment by London Caller — December 4, 2011 @ 16:58 | Reply

    • Hello London Caller.

      Oh, yeah, we got water, that’s true. No it is not right. According to Wikipedia there are only 187888 lakes in Finland larger than 5 Ares (500 square meters). That is a lot of lakes. Next year I’ll present one of them which is the third biggest in the North, beyond the Arctic Circle.

      Happy Sunday!

  10. Never went for a sea cruise like that one. Just once in a little, little boat.

    Comment by hpy — December 8, 2011 @ 16:12 | Reply

    • Hello Hpy.

      To us it was first time in Helsinki. We wanted to see Helsinki as a tourist sees it and we were not disappointed. It was a very great summer day.

      Thank You.

  13. Your photos are wonderful, and it is a dream of mine now to visit Helsinki, and take a cruise similar to the one you took.

    • Hello Davinder.

      Helsinki is beautiful city seen from the sea. On the waters of Helsinki there a lot of small island. When going to the West there is an Archipelago called Åland with over 6,500 skerries and islands. Finland has surprises.

      Thank You for Your comment.

      Have a wonderful day!
