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.
