Walking tour in Helsinki1

Last summer we made a nice walking tour in Helsinki. It was not long but offered much to see. I present it for future visitors who might make the same tour following in our footsteps.

Our walking tour started from the Hakaniemi metro station and ended at Oodi – Helsinki’s New Central Library. Here is our route: Hakaniemi, Tokoinranta, Winter Garden, Töölönlahti, Hesperianpuisto and Oodi. At this point names sound odd, but no problem, because I have under every photo explaining text in English and you will not lose me. Total number of photos is 35 including the map to which I have marked our route by small black points. There are two arrows on the map. The arrow to the right shows the starting point. The arrow to the left shows the end point of our walk.

En español:

Paseo Paseo de Helsinki1

El verano pasado hicimos un agradable paseo en Helsinki. No fue largo pero ofreció mucho para ver. Lo presento para futuros visitantes que podrían hacer el mismo paseo siguiendo nuestros pasos.

Nuestro recorrido a pie comenzó desde la estación de metro Hakaniemi y terminó en Oodi, la Nueva Biblioteca Central de Helsinki. Aquí está nuestra ruta: Hakaniemi, Tokoinranta, Winter Garden, Töölönlahti, Hesperianpuisto y Oodi. En este punto, los nombres suenan raros, pero no hay problema, porque debajo de cada foto tengo un texto explicativo en inglés y no me perderás. El número total de fotos es 35, incluido el mapa en el que he marcado nuestra ruta con pequeños puntos negros. Hay dos flechas en el mapa. La flecha a la derecha muestra el punto de partida. La flecha a la izquierda muestra el punto final de nuestra caminata.

Balade à Helsinki1

L’été dernier, nous avons fait une belle balade à Helsinki. Ce ne fut pas longue mais offrit beaucoup à voir. Je le présente aux futurs visiteurs qui pourraient faire le même tour en suivant nos traces.
Notre balade a commencée à partir de la station de métro Hakaniemi et s’est terminée à Oodi – la nouvelle bibliothèque centrale d’Helsinki. Voici notre itinéraire: Hakaniemi, Tokoinranta, Winter Garden, Töölönlahti, Hesperianpuisto et Oodi. À ce stade, les noms semblent étranges, mais pas de problème, car j’ai sous chaque photo un texte expliquant en anglais et vous ne me perdrez pas. Le nombre total de photos est de 35, y compris la carte sur laquelle j’ai marqué notre itinéraire par de petits points noirs. Il y a deux flèches sur la carte. La flèche à droite montre le point de départ. La flèche à gauche montre le point final de notre promenade.

Em português:

Caminhada em Helsinque1

No verão passado, fizemos uma agradável caminhada em Helsinque. Não foi longa muito, mas ofereceu muito para ver. Apresento-lo para futuros visitantes que possam fazer o mesmo passeio seguindo nossos passos.

A nossa caminhada começou na estação de metrô Hakaniemi e terminou na Oodi – a Nova Biblioteca Central de Helsinque. Aqui está a nossa rota: Hakaniemi, Tokoinranta, Jardim de Inverno, Töölönlahti, Hesperianpuisto e Oodi. Nesse momento, os nomes parecem estranhos, mas não há problema, porque tenho em cada foto o texto em inglês e você não vai me perder. O número total de fotos é 35, incluindo o mapa para sobre o qual marquei nossa rota por pequenos pontos pretos. Existem duas setas no mapa. A seta à direita mostra o ponto de partida. A seta à esquerda mostra o ponto final de nossa caminhada.

Farewell Unknown Helsinki / Adiós Helsinki desconocida / Adieu Helsinki Inconnue / Adeus Desconhecido Helsinque / Helsinki desconhecida

In English:

These are farewells to this lovely island

We moved to a city next to Helsinki called Espoo. From Espoo it takes only 13 minutes by train to central Helsinki. In 2026, Helsinki and this island will get a tram connection. Then we’ll be back on the tram.

A little sadly, I remember the time when we lived on this island, which provided us with beautiful scenery, stunning seaside cliffs to walk on, wild flowers, forest paths to hike. These memories remain in our hearts for a long time, but new adventures invite us.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on what the last picture shows. Thank you all for exploring this island through my photos! Goodbye Laajasalo!

At the end I will you give links to previous messages.

En español:

Estas son las despedidas de esta hermosa isla

Nos mudamos a una ciudad al lado de Helsinki llamada Espoo. Desde Espoo, se tarda solo 13 minutos en tren al centro de Helsinki. En 2026, Helsinki y esta isla tendrán una conexión de tranvía. Luego volveremos en tranvía.

Un poco triste, recuerdo el momento en que vivíamos en esta isla, que nos proporcionó hermosos paisajes, impresionantes acantilados junto al mar para caminar, flores silvestres, caminos forestales para caminar. Estos recuerdos permanecen en nuestros corazones durante mucho tiempo, pero nuevas aventuras nos invitan.

Me encantaría saber tu opinión sobre lo que muestra la última imagen. ¡Gracias a todos para explorar esta isla a través de mis fotos! ¡Adiós Laajasalo!

Al final le daré enlaces a mensajes anteriores.

Ces sont les adieux à cette belle île

Nous avons nous installé à une ville à côté d’Helsinki appelée Espoo. D’Espoo, le trajet jusqu’au centre d’Helsinki ne prend que 13 minutes en train. En 2026, Helsinki et cette île auront une connexion de tramway. Ensuite, nous serons de retour en tramway.

Je ressens de la tristesse, je me souviens de l’époque où nous vivions sur cette île, qui nous fournissait de beaux paysages, de superbes falaises côtières sur lesquelles marcher, des fleurs sauvages, des sentiers forestiers pour faire de belles balades . Ces souvenirs restent longtemps dans nos cœurs, mais de nouvelles aventures nous attendent.

J’aimerais entendre vos commentaires sur ce que montre la dernière photo. Merci à tous pour explorer cette île à travers mes photos! Au revoir Laajasalo!

À la fin, je vous donnerai des liens vers les messages précédents.

Em Português:

Estes são os adeus a esta bela ilha

Nós nos mudamos para uma cidade próxima a Helsinki chamada Espoo. De Espoo, leva apenas 13 minutos de trem até o centro de Helsinque. Em 2026, Helsinque e esta ilha receberão uma conexão de eléctrico. Depois voltaremos de eléctrico.

Um pouco triste, lembro-me do tempo em que vivemos nesta ilha, que nos forneceu belas paisagens, deslumbrantes falésias à beira-mar para caminhar, flores silvestres, caminhos florestais para fazer passeios.em nossos corações.

Eu gostava muito de saber a vossa opinião sobre o que a última foto mostra. Obrigado a todos para explorar esta ilha através das minhas fotos! Adeus Laajasalo!
No final, darei-lhe links para mensagens anteriores.
