Search for ghost houses

This post is direct continuation of my series telling “Unknown” Helsinki. I decided to change the name, because ghost houses describe the content best.

I have heard about these abandoned houses on the biggest island of Helsinki – Laajasalo, but never visited them. On a sunny Sunday morning we decided to find them. To find them was not difficult when knowing where to start and where to find the right path thru the forest. In the beginning paths were quite wide, but when continuing the narrowed. Of course, there were no signs, but so what, because the area is not too big to explore.

There has been dozen villas originally from early 1900’s. Their story is long and sad, because nowadays they are nearly all destroyed and burned. Arson in this area have been systematic. Good thing is that after arson, there is no risk for collapsing houses if visitors want visit inside. The villas are located on the cliffs which are about 32 meters high.

We were expecting to find many ghost houses, but we found remains of one burned house and one ghost house. The house was left with broken windows and graffiti was painted everywhere. It was in poor condition and I didn’t go inside to photograph – naturally. Here and where we saw some old bushes of Roses and rhododendrons.

My wife guides You in this post thru the gorgeous forest to the ghost house. On the way we stopped by the forest pond where we saw some water lilies. On the way back we decided to visit the pond again. There is a trail leading around it. When we visited the area, it was quite early morning with sun shine, which helped to catch beautiful photos with shades and lights. The green color was multicolored in the forest.

Visiting the area, You must take the bus number 88 (Kaitalahti) from Herttoniemi Metro station. At the final stop, continue ahead on the road called Päätie. After walking about 300 meters You will arrive on the corner where my wife shows You where to continue (first photo). She guides You all the time and finally to the terminus (last photo).

Búsqueda de casas fantasmas

Este post es la continuación directa de mi serie que presenta “Desconocido” Helsinki. Decidí cambiar el nombre, porque las casas fantasma describen mejor el contenido.

He oído hablar de estas casas abandonadas en la isla más grande de Helsinki, Laajasalo, pero nunca las visité. En una soleada mañana de domingo decidimos encontrarlos. No era difícil encontrarlos al saber dónde comenzar y dónde encontrar el camino correcto a través del bosque. Al principio los caminos eran bastante anchos, pero al continuar los se estrecharon. Por supuesto, no existía señales viales, pero ¿y qué? Porque el área no es demasiado grande para explorar.

Ha habido una docena de villas originalmente desde principios de 1900. Su historia es larga y triste, porque hoy en día casi todas están destruidas y quemadas. Los incendios provocados en esta área han sido sistemáticos. Lo bueno es que después de un incendio, no hay riesgo de que las casas se derrumben si los visitantes quieren visitar el interior. Las villas están situadas en los acantilados que tienen unos 32 metros de altura.

Esperábamos encontrar muchas casas fantasmas, pero encontramos solamente restos de una casa quemada y una casa fantasma. La casa quedó con ventanas rotas y pintadas con graffiti por todas partes. Estaba en mal estado y no entré a fotografiar, naturalmente. Aquí y allá vimos algunos viejos arbustos de rosas y rododendros.

Mi esposa vos guía en este post a través del hermoso bosque hasta la casa fantasma. En el camino paramos junto al estanque del bosque donde vimos unos nenúfares. De regreso decidimos visitar el estanque nuevamente. Hay un sendero que lleva a su alrededor. Cuando visitamos la zona ,fue de madrugada, el sol brillaba, lo que nos ayudó a capturar hermosas fotos con sombras y luces. El color verde era multicolor en el bosque.

Al visitar el área, vos debe coger el autobús número 88 (Kaitalahti) desde la estación de metro Herttoniemi. En la parada final, continúe directo el camino llamada Päätie. Después de caminar unos 300 metros, llegará a la esquina donde mi esposa le muestra dónde continuar (primera foto). Ella vos guiará todo el tiempo y finalmente al final (última foto).

Recherche de maisons fantômes

Cet article est la suite directe de ma série racontant “Inconnu” Helsinki. J’ai décidé de changer le nom, car les maisons fantômes décrivent le contenu le mieux.

J’ai entendu parler de ces maisons abandonnées sur la plus grande île d’Helsinki – Laajasalo, mais je ne les ai jamais visitées. Un dimanche matin ensoleillé, nous avons décidé de les trouver. Les trouver n’a pas été difficile quand on sait où commencer et où trouver le bon chemin à travers la forêt. Au début, les chemins étaient assez larges, mais en continuant, ils sont devenus plus étroits. Bien sûr, il n’y avait aucun signe, mais alors quoi, car la région n’est pas trop grande pour être explorée.

Il y a eu une douzaine de villas datant du début des années 1900.Leur histoire est longue et triste, car à présent, elles sont presque tous détruites et brûlées. Les incendies criminels dans ce domaine ont été systématiques. La bonne chose est qu’après l’incendie criminel, il n’y a aucun risque d’effondrement des maisons si les visiteurs veulent visiter l’intérieur. Les villas sont situées sur les falaises qui sont à environ 32 mètres de haut.

Nous nous attendions à trouver de nombreuses maisons fantômes, mais nous avons trouvé seulemnt les restes d’une maison incendiée et d’une maison fantôme. La maison a été laissée avec des fenêtres cassées et des graffitis ont été peints partout. C’était en mauvais état et je ne suis pas allé à l’intérieur pour photographier – naturellement. Ici et où nous avons vu de vieux buissons de roses et de rhododendrons.

Ma femme vous guide dans ce billet à travers la magnifique forêt jusqu’à la maison fantôme. En chemin, nous nous sommes arrêtés près de l’étang forestier où nous avons vu des nénuphars. Sur le chemin du retour, nous avons décidé de visiter l’étang à nouveau. Il y a un sentier qui l’entoure. Lorsque nous avons visité la région, il faisait assez tôt le matin avec un rayon de soleil qui m’a permis d’attraper de belles photos avec des ombres et des lumières. La couleur verte était multicolore dans la forêt.

Pour visiter la région, vous devez prendre le bus numéro 88 (Kaitalahti) depuis la station de métro Herttoniemi. terminus. Après avoir marché environ 300 mètres, vous arriverez au coin où ma femme vous indique où continuer (première photo). Elle vous guide tout le temps et finalement jusqu’au terminus (dernière photo).

Busca de casas fantasmas

Este post é continuação direta da minha série dizendo “Desconhecido” Helsinki. Eu decidi mudar o nome, porque as casas fantasmas descrevem melhor o conteúdo.

Eu ouvi falar sobre essas casas abandonadas na maior ilha de Helsinki – Laajasalo, mas nunca as visitei. Em uma manhã ensolarada de domingo, decidimos encontrá-las. Encontrá-las não foi difícil quando se sabe por onde começar e onde encontrar o caminho certo através da floresta. No início, os caminhos eram bastante amplos, mas ao continuar vieram mais estreitos. Claro, não havia sinais, mas e daí, porque a área não é demasiado grande para ser explorada.

Houve dúzias de vilas originalmente do início de 1900.A sua história é longa e triste, porque hoje em dia elas são quase todas destruídas e queimadas. O incêndio nesta área tem sido sistemático. Ainda bem que, depois do incêndio, não há risco de casas em colapso se os visitantes quiserem visitar o interior. As moradias estão localizadas nas falésias que são cerca de 32 metros de altura.

Estávamos esperando encontrar muitas casas fantasmas, mas encontramos só restos de uma casa queimada e uma casa fantasma. A casa ficou com janelas quebradas e pichações foram pintadas em toda parte. Estava em mau estado e não entrei para fotografar – naturalmente. Aqui e ali vimos alguns velhos arbustos de rosas e rododendros.

A minha esposa guia você nesse artigo através da floresta linda para a casa do fantasma. No caminho paramos à beira do lago da floresta onde vimos alguns nenúfares. Na volta, decidimos visitar o lago novamente. Há uma trilha que leva ao redor dele. Quando visitamos a área, foi muito cedo na manhã com sol, o que ajudou a capturar belas fotos com tons e luzes. A cor verde era multicolorida na floresta.

Visitando à área, você deve pegar o ônibus número 88 (Kaitalahti) da estação de metrô Herttoniemi. Na última parada, continue em frente na estrada chamada Päätie. Depois de caminhar cerca de 300 metros Você chegará na esquina onde a minha esposa lhe mostra onde continuar (a primeira foto). Ela guia você todo o tempo e finalmente até a parada do ônibus (a última foto).

  1. Hello! The ghost house in the beautiful nature is sad. Ghost houses are increasing in Japan as well. Were you interested and visited? Water lilies that bloom in the pond are very beautiful. Have a good day!

  2. Hello Mr. Matti,
    Thank you for sharing more of your beautiful country. It is especially interesting for us, because we can’t “see” this information in traditional books or travel info. I agree, it is sad the history of the ghost houses. It makes a striking contrast with beautiful nature. I am happy you and your wife could visit together, please give her best wishes from me and my husband.

    Best wishes,
    Takami

    PS – We visited the Tove Jansson Akebono Children’s Park last month! It was very beautiful with lovely architecture. As you know, Moomin is much loved in Japan. Again, thank you for sharing the information.

  6. I enjoyed the stroll with you both along the forest paths and I especially liked the water lily pond. One of my favourite things about Finland is that nature is always on the doorstep. Thank you for posting this beautiful photos Matti and I hope you are enjoying the summertime which I’ve read in YLE is cooler than usual. Marion

    • Hello Marion.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. Yes, it has been “colder” than usually. We just walked to the shop / library 4 km / 2.5 mi (Saari shopping center) and it rained all the way back and forth. It was not a problem, because we have umbrellas and reincoats. 🙂 My wife keeps daily diary and last year we had these temperatures:

      Helsinki July 16, 2018 30℃ / 86℉.
      Helsinki July 17, 2018 32℃ / 90℉.
      Utsjoki July 17, 2018 32℃ / 90℉.

      Please note, that Utsjoki is north of Helsinki 1088km / 676mi. This means that it is in the north! Well, this year – what about global warming – memories! 🙂

      Have a wonderful day!

      Kiitokset kauniista kommentista. Laajasalon saari on monelle tuntematon. Mitä siellä on, monet ehkä sanovat, eivätkä vaivaudu itse tutkimaan asia. Minun vastaukseni on luontoa ja kauneutta, vaikka onkin ihan Helsingin naapurissa. Nyt se on todistettu neljän postauksen voimin.

      Hyvää päivänjatkoa.

  18. Most beautiful the way to these abandoned houses which regrettably became the victim of an arson attack respectively is now covered with graffiti and already gone to rack. Such a perfect idyll around – and right in the middle of it these ruins …

    I enjoyed the guided tour in the forest (thanks to Anja for showing always where to go and which turn to make on the path). The pond looks gorgeous in the morning light! I also love your two photos taken on your way back showing a kind of cotton grass growing at the pondside.

    I’m glad that you mentioned this new forest post in a commentary on my blog as sadly just on this day your blog entry as well as two or three other posts published by blogs that I follow didn’t show up in the WP reader. I discovered them by pure chance and of course with some delay.

    Have a nice weekend, Matti!

    • Hello Michèle.

      It was a great fun to organize a “guided” tour. Before going there, we discussed how to present them in the best way keeping in our mind that: “what about if somebody really wants to go there”.

      I am glad that You knew cotton grass among my photos. This was the second time since 2012, when I showed them. In this post I have good photos of them:

      Giant potholes

      Thank You very much for Your praising comment.
