Three faces of Helsinki / Tres caras de Helsinki / Trois visages de Helsinki / Três faces de Helsínquia

In English:

This post contains old photos.

This post shows to You three different faces of Helsinki. First thirteen photos show roofs of Helsinki seen from the top of Hotelli Torni (Hotel Tower). This hotel is in the center of Helsinki and it was opened in 1931. In those days it was the highest building (69.5 m / 228 ft) in Helsinki. Today, it is the third highest in Helsinki (situation changes all the time). Its women’s toilet is famous among Ladies due to the scenery which it offers. So, You Ladies, if You visit Helsinki someday, visit the famous Ladies toilet of the Hotel Tower! It is a must.

Next sixteen photos show children’s sailing contest using Optimism dinghies on the Bay of the Töölönlahti (Töölö Bay) in the center of Helsinki. If You never have seen what are Optimism dinghies, then it is high time to see these “bathtubs”. Töölönlahti is very popular among pedestrians, joggers and bikers, because around it there is 2.2 km / 1.6 mi long path.

Last eighteen photos show the strands of the residential district called Munkkiniemi (Bay of Monk) on our autumnal walk. I have lived in Munkkiniemi in my life about ten years. It is very quiet area and thus nice place for a visit and easy to reach by streetcar or on foot. Photos 15 and 16 show the official residence Tamminiemi (Bay of Oak) of our former president Urho Kekkonen (1900-1986).

En español:

Este post contiene viejas fotos.

Este post Vos muestra tres caras diferentes de Helsinki. Primeros tres fotos muestran techos de Helsinki visto desde la parte superior de Hotel Torni (Hotel Torre). Este hotel está en el centro de Helsinki y fue inaugurado en 1931. En aquellos días era el edificio más alto (69,5 m / 228 pies) en Helsinki. Hoy, es el tercer más alto en Helsinki (situación cambia todo el tiempo). El cuarto de baño de las mujeres es famoso entre las damas por el paisaje que ofrece. Así pues, usted señoras, si usted visita Helsinki algún día, visita el famoso cuarto de baño de las mujeres del Hotel Torre! Es el “deber”.

Dieciséis fotos siguientes muestran un concurso de vela para los niñosl utilizando botes Optimismo en la bahía de la Töölönlahti (Töölö Bahia) en el centro de Helsinki. Si usted nunca ha visto lo que son bateles Optimismo, entonces ya es hora de ver a estos “bañeras”. Töölönlahti es muy popular entre los peatones, corredores y ciclistas, ya que a su alrededor de camino es 2,2 km / 1,6 mi largo.

Las últimos dieciocho fotos muestran la línea de costa del distrito residencial llamada Munkkiniemi (Bahía de Monje) en nuestro paseo otoñal. He vivido en Munkkiniemi en mi vida de unos diez años. Es una zona muy tranquila y por lo tanto un buen lugar para una visita y de fácil acceso en tranvía oa pie. Fotos 15 y 16 muestran la residencia oficial Tamminiemi (Bahía de roble) de nuestro ex presidente Urho Kekkonen (1900-1986).

En francais:

Ce poste contient vieilles photos.

Ce poste vous montre trois visages différents d’Helsinki. Premières treize photos montrent toits de Helsinki vu du haut de la Hoteeli Torni “Hôtel Tour “. Cet hôtel est dans le centre d’Helsinki et il a été ouvert en 1931. Dans ces jours, il était le plus haut bâtiment (69,5 m / 228 m) à Helsinki. Aujourd’hui, il est le troisième plus haut à Helsinki (situation change tout le temps). La toilette de dames est célèbre parmi les dames en raison du paysage offre. Ainsi mesdames si vous venez visiter Helsinki quelque jour, visitez la célèbre toilettes de dames de la tour de l’Hôtel! C’est la obligation.

Les seize photos suivantes montrent un concours de voile pour les enfants en utilisant des petites voiliers d’optimisme sur la baie de la Töölönlahti (Töölö Baie) dans le centre d’Helsinki. Si vous ne avez jamais vu ce que sont les voiliers d’optimisme, alors maintenant il est grand temps de voir ces “baignoires”. Töölönlahti est très populaire parmi les piétons, les joggeurs et les cyclistes, car autour de celle, il y a une piste de longueur de 2,2 km / 1,6 km.

Les dernières dix-huit photos montrent le rivage du quartier résidentiel appelé Munkkiniemi Bbaie de Moine) sur notre promenade automnale. Je ai vécu dans Munkkiniemi dans ma vie une dizaine d’années. Ce est un quartier très calme et donc bel endroit pour rendre une visite et de facile d’accès en tramway ou à pied. Photos 15 et 16 montrent la résidence officielle Tamminiemi (Bay of Chêne) de notre ancien président Urho Kekkonen (1900-1986).

Em Português:

Este post contém fotos velhas.

Este post você mostra três faces diferentes de Helsinki Os primeiros treze fotos mostram telhados de Helsinki visto do alto de Hotel Torni (Hotel Torre). Este hotel está situado no centro de Helsinki e foi inaugurado em 1931. Naquela época era o edifício mais alto (69,5 m / 228 pés) em Helsinki. Hoje, é o terceiro maior em Helsínquia (situação muda todo o tempo). O banheiro das senhoras é famoso entre as senhoras, devido à paisagem que oferece. Assim, você senhoras, se você vou visitareis em Helsinki algum dia, visitai tambem o banheiro famoso das senhoras do Hotel Torre! É uma obrigação.

As dezesseis próxima fotos mostram competição de vela para crianças usando veleiros pequenos Otimismo na Baía da Töölönlahti (Töölö Baia), no centro de Helsínquia. Se você nunca viu o que são botes Otimismo, então é chegada a hora de ver esses “banheiras”. Töölönlahti é muito popular entre pedestres, corredores e ciclistas, porque o torno dele é de 2,2 km / 1,6 mi caminho longo.

As últimas dezoito fotos os mostram o passeio do bairro residencial chamado Munkkiniemi (Baía de Monge) na nossa caminhada outonal. Eu vivi em Munkkiniemi na minha vida, cerca de dez anos. É uma área muito tranquila e, assim, lugar agradável para uma visita e fácil de chegar de bonde ou a pé. Fotos 15 e 16 mostram a residência oficial Tamminiemi (Baia de Carvalho) do nosso ex-presidente Urho Kekkonen (1900-1986).

  5. Gorgeous. I love Helsinki! There’s so many differents sides to it as you have shown. It’s a pity the Torni bar is so expensive. Sometimes I just take friends up for the view but it would be nice to stop for a drink too.

  15. Hei!

    I visited Helsinki 2weeks ago. It was 4th time, and for the first in four years.
    It was very short trip, only 4 nights. But I could feel wonderful wind of Helsinki, could see beautiful young green leaves.
    I walked around Töölö Bay, I ate salmiakki icecream, and I drank Karhu beer. I went to Linnanmäki, I went shopping to UFF, Fida and etc…
    I could enjoy my short holidays in Helsinki, but I’ve forgotten to go to the “vessa” of Hotelli Torni!! I must go to there to see beautiful view someday. lol

    Kiitos 🙂

  16. I enjoyed this latest blogpost about Helsinki very much, Matti. Sometimes it reminds me a bit of Hamburg and of Stockholm, too. Not the whole city, of course, but some views, some houses and the combination of a lot of green and a lot of water around. Very nice city! May I ask when you took these photos? I mean the first part, just before you show the children in their “bathtubs”. Children here are learning to sail in these small boats just on the outer Alster Lake – and we alsocall them “bathtubs” or sometimes “yoghurt pots”. ^^
    If you ever should come to Hamburg you might visit (or try) the German equivalent to your nice women’s toilet in Hotelli Torni. Here in Hamburg the men’s toilets of the Riverside Hotel and its Sky Bar 20Up are famous for their view across the habour and the river Elbe. The “pissoirs” are located on the 20th floor in front of a large, large windowpane … ^^

    Thanks for your interesting post and the impressions of your birth town Helsinki. And you one time returned and moved exactly in your old house where you lived as a child? Great! :-))

    Have a nice week, Matti! Best regards from Hamburg!

      Helsinki is rapidly changing town. Also, Helsinki is bikeable town as the town of Oulu where we stay at this moment. Thank You for Your visiting my blog and leaving Your kind comment. I hope to see You some day in Helsinki. If You bike in Finland, remember that in our northernmost parts there are no nights. To bike “thru” the night where sun shines, is an experience.

      Have a nice day!

      • Oh now that sounds amazing! What months of the year would it be possible to do that?

        Comment by Sue Slaght — June 8, 2016 @ 16:35 | Reply

        • Hello Sue.

          Thank You for Your interest. I glad that You showed interest in this matter. First generally speaking. At this moment, we are in the middle of Finland in Oulu (65°01′N, 025°28′E) and the length of the day is only 2 hours 22 minutes. Night is not black; it is twilight, although sun stays behind the horizon more than 2 hours.

          Today I heard from radio that in Saariselkä (68°15′N, 028°10′E) today is the first day, when sun is over horizon. White nights last from the end of May until the end of July. For example in Nuorgam (70°04′50″N, 027°52′30″E), which is our Northernmost part white nights begin in mid-May and at end of July.

          There is one most exotic place in Norway, which is easy to reach from Finland’s side and is the Norhernmost place in Europe to make a road trip. It is Nordkapp. (71°10’21″N,25°47’40″E) Years ago we made road trip to there from Helsinki to Rovaniemi by car carrier train and then by car to Nordkapp. The route from Finnish side is easy, but from Norwegian side more difficult when we returned via a different route. Anyway, if You love to bike on Norwegian side, it is okay. Internet is full of different kind of stories about trips to Nordkapp.🙂 We love it! Maybe some day again.

          I wish that my ideas awaked in You Wanderlust and is helpful for Your future plans! Matti.

  27. Hello, Sartenada !
    I came back to Tokyo from Helsinki by Finnair yesterday.
    It was my first visit and my short trip. I stayed in Helsinki only for 5 days.
    I love Finland, and I want to visit again someday.
    So, I will enjoy your photos of Finland until the next visit !!!
    Thank you.

  29. Like the rooftop views. I’ve been to Helsinki a couple of times but only on business so I just saw the inside of Nokia offices. Nice to see the real Helsinki🙂

    • Hi Andy.

      Thank you for Your kind answer. You made double comment, so I deleted the first one. Inside Nokia offices! My daughter worked there many years and later for Microsoft.🙂

      Happy new week.
