Urban Helsinki

Home to both animals and humans and funny street cars

have a look at a Helsinki as I know it !

Please have a look at my Travelogues in
Uusimaa too - about Helsinki as well.


this wonderful princess of the baltic sea charms everybody with her lovely and attractive curves and manysided possibilities...

always worth visiting, both summer and winter will deeply impress you!

Winter days and nights

Yes it is true. During winter we have little daylight. The sun rises in Helsinki in the end of decembre between 9-9.30 and sets between 15-15.30.

On the other hand in summer time (June) we fully enjoy the sun from around 3.50-22.50 - some 19 hours of sun!!! You have to experience it at least once so you really believe it or even understand what so much sun means...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the summer time
  • Cons:the not-summer time
  • In a nutshell:the stronghold of freedom
