Take it easy and slow down – this is where Helsinki has a nap and there is a strange feeling that modern life has not fully arrived here yet. The neighbourhood is sophisticated in a no-frills way. There is beautiful architecture, wide green spaces, and many paths and spots along the shore for admiring a sunrise or sunset. A long part of the beach attracts many visitors in both summer and winter. Small local street-side shops offer all kinds of treasures, from flea-market finds to the best pizza in town.
