Sunny Marine Helsinki ❤︎

Helsinki is called the Pearl of the Baltic Sea, and well deserves this praise. The city is surrounded by abundant waterfronts of The Gulf of Finland. The first photo shows the market place and behind it the Helsinki Cathedral and presidential residence that is now used for official purposes.  Since 1993 Mäntyniemi (Helsinki) has been the president’s winter residence and Kultaranta (Naantali) his summer residence. 

In Kaivopuisto Park there is a popular promenade & gathering place with sun, 
boats and marine feeling - and delicious icecream & cafés.

The original Götheborg / Gothenburg, a trading vessel that belonged to the Swedish 
East India Company, sank in 1745. A full-scale replica Götheborg II was completed 
in 2005-2007 and was on a visit to Helsinki and anchored besides the Market Place.
 The ship is the world’s largest wooden ocean-going sailing vessel in service. 
More about this stunning vessel in a future post.

Wishing Sunny Summer Days!
