Pitsitalo (Lace House ) by Huttunen-Lipasti-Pakkanen architects is located in Jätkäsaari area, on the southwestern tip of central Helsinki. • In 1865, the official number of permanent residents in the area was only 20 or so living in little cabins. The island was a summer villa haven for society, as well as a recreational spot for Helsinkians.​ 🏡 • Later the area used to host a cargo port with the busiest traffic in Helsinki. In 2008, the freight traffic was relocated to the eastern side of the city, and construction began on the new residential area.​ The Jätkäsaari complex is scheduled to be completed by 2030. It will eventually house 18,000 residents and have business space for 6,000 office workers. 🏗️ • • • 📸 @helsinkifacades #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki

@ihanakahvilabaari summer cafe still open for a couple of weeks. ❤️The cafe is like a public secret, just like the nearby  @sompasauna • Sompasaari in the former harbour area at Sörnäinen and the adjacent Kalasatama area have been transformed into new residential areas since 2010. Whole new parts of the city have risen out of the former industrial areas, and when fully completed in 2035, the area should be home to 17,000 residents. • The empty land at the southern tip of Sompasaari has for years been home to Ihana Kahvila, literally the “Lovely Café”, where you can sit and admire the transformation of the former harbour, the fine graffiti art and Helsinki’s fine silhouette. • • • 📸 @maailma_mun_silmin #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki

Pihlajasaari – or Pihlis – (around 26 hectares ) is a ten-minute ferry ride from the southern Helsinki downtown shore. • Pihlis is in fact two islands, a western island and an eastern island, but a walking bridge connects them and together they have  nearly five kilometres of shoreline. • • • 📸 @kaakaonibsi #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki

Are you looking for space to simply enjoy the peace and quiet? Helsinki has lots of places where you can calm your nerves, either alone or with others. There is silence even in the heart of the city. • Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden and the Winter Garden are Helsinki’s year-round oases. The greenhouses at Kaisaniemi house over 800 different plant species and that there are another 2800 species in the outside gardens. In fact, the gardens date back to 1763 and the Palm House to 1888. These are the perfect places to simply sit quietly and enjoy the tropical humidity. 🌿💚🌵 • • • 📸: @mikkoyao #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki

Artist David Popa painted this large scale portrait with all natural, ephemeral materials on an island in front of Helsinki. • "When I saw that here in Finland there would be a week of full sun and no rain to wash the piece away, I knew this was my shot. (... ) To be on this small island working alongside nature, the animals and using pigments naturally found in the earth just struck a deep chord within me." • The work is dedicated to David's wife and it is titled "60.1442206 , 24.8866400", which are the coordinates of the piece. • • • 📸 @david_popa_art #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki

Hot tip! Sunflowers are blooming at Haltiala Farm. Brighten up your day, follow the signs go pick some. 🌻🌻🌻 • The Haltiala farm / @haltialan_kotielaintila cultivates peas and flowers on some fields, and city residents are welcome to pick them for free in July-August. The exact dates vary depending on when the peas are ripe and the flowers bloom. The flowers include sunflowers, rye flowers and cotton. The amount of produce picked by one person is limited in order that as many people as possible can enjoy the harvest. Signs guide visitors to the fields. • • • 📸 @simon albazoon for @lifeofnina_ #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki

While in Helsinki, why not try to spot and use as many beautiful spiral staircases as you can? • These beauties are located at the legendary Stockmann’s department store. Opened at its current address in 1930, the store is part of the local's shared memory. It is the stories our grandparents tell about elevator girls and the memories of countless meetings "under the clock" at the main entrance. • • • 📸 @gregorklar #myhelsinki #helsinki #visithelsinki
