  • I went through this square on the way south from "Market Square" to "Kaivopuist Park". Because there is a considerable height difference, the view is good, and cherry blossoms (? It was also in bloom. There is a church, too, and it is a very quiet space. It was an early morning visit, but there were a few people walking their dogs, and we were able to spend a peaceful time.

  • It stands on a hill. It was an astronomical museum when I thought it was an observatory and entered by mistake. There is a history of astronomical instruments and a little exhibition about the universe. I think the admission fee was 6-8€, but it's quite high for the size of the exhibition.

  • This is a great park in southern Helsinki area. Helsinki University observatory and the department of astronomy locate on top of the hill surrounded by the park. Especially autumn colou are often incomparable, from any direction you approach. It is only about a hundred meters from Olympic terminal where Silja Line docks. I suggest visitors from Stockholm direction take a small detour through the park on their way to the Old Market Hall and the Market Square.
  • Helsinki Astronomical Observatory and surruounding gardens : well worth a visit !
