Katajanokka, Helsinki

4.3
#1 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Finland
Once a peninsula and now a separate island, Katajanokka long remained a well-kept local secret that has flourished into a restaurant hotspot with buzzing atmosphere. As you wander through the charming area, take time to appreciate ornate facades of well-preserved art nouveau buildings and the gold onion domes of the largest Orthodox cathedral in Western Europe. Other highlights include a former 19th-century prison converted into a hotel, a Ferris wheel offering a bird's-eye view of Helsinki, an outdoor sea swimming pool with saunas, and views of the Finnish icebreaker fleet moored at the harbor. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Katajanokka and many more Helsinki attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Helsinki trip planner.
