5th #Ulog: My trip to Helsinki, Finland (Part #2)

November 2018 · 3 min read · Helsinki

Hello my fellow Steemians and Uloggers!


This is my 5th #Ulog and I want to share with you my recent trip to Helsinki, Finland. During the last weekend of October I went to Helsinki, Finland, just for two days to have fun. This is part #2 of my trip to Helsinki! You can read my part #1 here.


As I said earlier, I am from Bulgaria (a small country in Southern Europe), but, at the momentm, I live and work in Moscow, Russia. So, I was able to find cheap tickets by plane from Moscow, Russia to Helsinki, Finland.


So, let me continue ... As, I said earlier we traveled by bus from the airport to the Main Railway station of Helsinki. The Railway Square (in finish Rautatientori) that is located next to the station turned out to be very beautiful. So, I took a few pics of it. Let me show you how the Railway Square looks like:

This is the Ateneum (According to WikiPedia it is an art museum in Helsinki and one of the three museums forming the Finnish National Gallery):

The building of the Ateneum looks like many buildings in Russia, because it was built in 1887, when Finland was a part of the Russian Empire.

Later, we went to the city center. This is a lively pedestrianized street Keskuskatu:

Later, we went to Esplanadi park. In the park there is a very interesting statue of Johan Ludwig Runeberg (According to Wikipedia a prominent Finno-Swedish lyric and epic poet):

One more pic of the statue:

A bit later we went to the old city. Most of the buildings look like in Saint-Petersburg Russia:

And, of course, we went to Helsinki Senate Square (in finish Senaatintori). Let me show you some pics. This is the statue of the Emperor of Russian Empire Alexander II:

This is the Helsinki Catherdral (a typical russian style):

There is a very nice view of the Senaatintori from the Helsinki Cathedral:

Then we decided to go to the Old Market Square (in finish Kauppatori):

In the Square there is some monument that has remaind from the period of the Russian Empire called Keisarinnankivi:

And, of course, we decided to go from the Old Market Square to Suomenlinna. It is a sea fortress built on six islands that are in the Baltic Sea very close to the city of Helsinki. So, we went to the Harbour and took the ferry:

But that's it for today! In my next #ulog (My trip to Helsinki, Finland (Part #3)) I will show you the sea fortress Suomenlinna.
