Unknown Helsinki3 / Helsinki desconocida3 / Helsinki Inconnu3 / Helsinki desconhecida3

In English:

Laajasalo – the biggest island of Helsinki and Helsinki’s 49th district in eastern Helsinki

Part 3.

Visiting Laajasalo (Degerö in Swedish) is easy. Take metro which goes to Itäkeskus or Myllypuro. Hop off at Herttoniemi subway station. Walk out of subway station and take some of these buses: 84 – Gunillankallio, 85 – Jollas , 88 and 88B – Kaitalahti and Kruunuvuorenranta, 89 – Yliskylä. There are other bus routes, but I suggest to You these routes. You can hop off anytime or at final stop. Where You decide to hop off, start walking. As soon as possible, choose a path. Everywhere on the island, there are cycling and walking paths. Selecting path, they give to You an excellent way to explore the island. Getting lost – no, because every path lead to some road and on roads there is traffic. When returning all the busses are marked with sign Herttoniemi.

The nature varies from well-kept parks to rocks and small forests. The building style vary from apartment house to detached houses. There are also semidetached houses. The architecture varies depending in which decades they are built. Some houses have beautiful gardens. The best of Laajasalo is its nature. Depending where Your walking tour takes, You can imagine that You are in the jungle on some areas. We love taking our walking tours wandering along the seaside paths. The island is not big, because You walk from the farthest place in an hour and ten minutes to Herttoniemi metro station, but enough big to explore its beauty and variety.

In the middle of Laajasalo, there is a place called Yliskylä, bus 89, the quite new two-storied shopping center called Saari (island). It is nice place where You can enjoy in all peace your coffee with some yummy. I suggest!. It offers of course everything for residents. Coffee shops and restaurants are of high quality and they offer a nice place to sniff the atmosphere on the island. If You want walk from Saari shopping center to Herttoniemi, it takes about 20 minutes walk. Well, there is a huge park, which I recommend, on the way and it is worth for a visit. Everywhere on the island there are also rentable city bikes.

In this post, I am interested in to know what You see in two last photos.

Welcome and start Your adventure!

    • Hello Stella.

      Sounds good. Sodankylä is small place, but during the festival there must be great fun. There are two wooden churches, of which the old one is from 1689! If You have time, then climb to the top of Arctic hill of Kiilopää. It is easy to climb, but worth to visit the hill top.

      Maybe this inspires You:

  6. Hola !!!
    Preciosas fotos y muy sugerente post sobre las bellezas del Helsinki periférico.
    Estuve en el Sibelius Parken y por supuesto en el monumento a Sibelius y todo a su alrededor me pareció una maravilla, el lago, los bosques……..
    Me encanta que nos hayas enseñado otra parte más para visitar en la bella Helsinki.

        Es muy bonito el bosque que relatas, así que te sugiero que sigas deleitándonos con tus bonitos relatos y fotos.
        Estuve en Helsinki hace 6 años y hace 5 años sobrevolé los alrededores cuando hice una escala en el aeropuerto. Desde el aire los alrededores de la capital me fascinaron, es una preciosidad.
        A punto estuve de bajarme en Helsinki aunque iba para Delhi. Jaja.
        Tengo que volver a ese precioso pais.
        Que tengas una buena semana.

        • Que linda Louisa.

          Helsinki es hermosa en verano y especialmente a mediados de verano. Siempre deseo que los turistas hagan también excursiones cortas a las ciudades vecinas. Simplemente ofrecen experiencias que Helsinki no ofrece.

          Mi favorito es Porvoo, que ofrece el encantador casco antiguo con casas coloridas. Hyvinkää con su museo ferroviario. Hämeenlinna con increíbles posibilidades para caminar entre la naturaleza pura. Hay un viejo castillo que cuenta nuestra historia. Finalmente Lohja donde se encuentra una hermosa iglesia antigua. En todas sus paredes están llenas de pinturas con elementos religiosos. Especilly ellos me encanta cómo esos artistas de la iglecia muestran zapatos zapatos! Mi padre era zapatero, así que esto explica mi interés.

          ¡Que tengas un buen día!

            Me encantará ver la iglesia que mencionas ya que me parece muy curioso lo de los zapatos. Aunque mi padre no haya sido zapatero, igualmente me parece muy interesante y diferente.

                    • Possiblente Louisa. 🙂

                      Tu palabra Duende me recordó la vieja canción muy popular finlandesa:

                      Rayo de sol y duende

                      Es en finlandesa, pero me lo tradujo para ti::

                      Sucedió cuando el sol se puso. Que un rayo de sol, por un momento. De sus hermanas dejadas atrás. El crepúsculo ya se arrastró y la viga, con sus alas doradas. Estaba a punto de volar cuando ella detectó a este duende más pequeño acercándose. Eso acababa de salir de su guarida. Los duendes no pueden vagar por la tierra hasta que después del atardecer. No viven a la luz del día, no.

                      Mirando el uno al otro, El duende, en el pecho se sintió más bien, extraño tipo de llama y ardor. Dijo él: “Quema mis ojos, esto lo haces. Pero nunca en mi vida he visto algo tan maravilloso! No importa que tu brillo ciegue mis ojos para siempre …En la oscuridades bueno vivir. Quédate conmigo, por favor, y te mostraré el camino a la casa -¡Manteniéndote como mi propia preciosa entonces!

                      El rayo respondió: “Duende, querido, la oscuridad sería mi perdición. Y no tengo deseos de morir. Debo volar lejos ahora de inmediato. Si no vuelvo pronto a la luz del día. Entonces no viviré ni un momento más. Así salió el rayo de sol que hermosa. Pero a este día todavía, mientras el duende pisa solo en la oscuridad, se pregunta por qué uno de nosotros aquí, es un niño de luz y la otra noche ama.

                      Mi traducción solo da una idea. El video también tiene texto en inglés.

                      Buen fin de semana.

                    • Me alegro de que te haya gustado la canción. Hay muchas versiones, pero he seleccionado esta con las letras en inglés. Nuestra música es desconocida para el resto del mundo. Una vez presenté nuestro baile Humppa en el post, Parque de locomotora de vapor. En Finlandia tenemos todos los veranos, por ejemplo, festivales de tango. Amamos a Tangos y nuestros Tangos tienen melodías que rompen el corazón. Abrazo!

                    • Que gracioso la afición por el tango. No se me hubiese ocurrido.
                      Hay muchas cosas que desconocemos de otros paises, a veces del propio también.
                      Por eso está muy bien estos intercambios de opiniones e informaciones.

  9. Hello, Sartenada.
    Finland and Sweden are next door, so it’s easy to get there.
    There is a lot of green, and I feel that it is ♪ northern Europe where fairies live. The flowers are full and beautiful. Is it the same spring as Japan now?
    I wonder if it’s summer?
    There are a lot of modern and modern houses.
    Today, i was able to enjoy my trip to Northern Europe with pictures. Thank youvery♪

      Thank You. Yes, Finland and Sweden are neighbors! I have a photo where my one foot is on Swedish side and the other on Finnish side! Next winter I will show it. It is full summer here now!

  10. Hello (^^)
    I was able to enjoy the wonderful view of the trees and woods of the island, the blue of the sea, and flowers of various colors.
    Have a good day.

  11. Thanks for this highly interesting post and for the fantasic pictures. This post – as others before – reminds me again of the fact that not only Finland, but also the other Scandinavian countries are still on our bucket list.

      Well, I also did not realize that dinosaurs yet exist today! Maybe I have to send pictures to scientists! 🙂 Thank You commenting.

  13. I definitely see a dinosaur in the last two photos! As always, your pictures are lovely. I’m hoping to get to Laajasalo this week or next, as long as we have nice weather.
    I’m interested to hear what you think of my upcoming post (I’ll publish it on Thursday). I found a fascinating park full of history.
    Have a lovely rest of the week!

  16. Hello Mr. Matti,
    There are all spectacular views of Laajasalo! You are right, I was unaware of this town, and it’s exciting to learn it today.
    Finally…do I see “dinosaur” in your last 2 photos? 🙂
    Wishing you and your wife a happy week.

  18. As others have pointed out, it is “clearly” a dinosaur. I can see from your pictures why Finns settled in Wisconsin when they came to the new world. Some of your pictures look like home to me (and others like Up North, where my parents grew up and there are more Finns than down here).

          La Finlande est comme et Trou Blanc en Afrique, dans les temps, quand les explorateurs ont fait des voyages. Je pense que vous avez entendu de Pierre de Moreau de Maupertuis. C’était lui qui a visité la Finlande dans les années 1700! Jetez un oeil à mon post de 2010:

          Colline de Aavasaksa

          Je suis ravi d’apprendre que votre fille se rendra en Finlande. Quelle saison?

  23. Again I get the feeling it’s not only an extremely nice place to visit, Laajasalo Island really offers a lot for those permanently living there! The parks and forests on the one hand, infrastructure, shopping possibilities and perfect location of even a lot of new built houses on the other hand.
    (It’s therefore a bit sad to remember in this regard what you told about the reasons for your decision to move in autumn ….)

    Such beautiful photos! Thank you for showing more of Laajasalo in this 3rd part of your series about the “Unkown Helsinki”!

      Yes, this is my Helsinki and as You saw it is beautiful. I have made 33 Helsinki posts until now and presented nearly all the Finland from the south to the north and from the east to the west.

      Best part of Finland is Lapland. One simple example:

      Reindeer rides and Santa
