Another view to the TV Tower – this time seen from Brunnenstrasse, close to Bernauer Strasse.
One day we took a boat from the Market Square to one of the islands around Helsinki and enjoyed this great view. Of course I took a couple of pictures. On this photo you see the Helsinki Cathedral, a.k.a. “The White Church” (Finnish: Helsingin tuomiokirkko, Suurkirkko; Swedish: Helsingfors domkyrka, Storkyrkan) and the central Market Square (Kauppatori in Finnish, Salutorget in Swedish) as seen from the Sea.

I took this photo when we were taking a boat from the market square to the islands around Helsinki. In the foreground you see the lively central Market Square – in the background the impressive Uspenski Cathedral. On the right side the iconic Stora Enso building by Alvar Aalto form 1962, also known as “The Sugar Cube” because of its exterior made of pure white Carrara marble.
A view to the ‘backside’ of the Svartholma Sea Fortress. In this photo you can see the fortress walls – and two boats parked near the main harbor of the island.
Another view from the Svartholma Sea Fortress – a Sailboat passing by.
Hanko is one of the few places in Finland where you can actually hang on a proper beach. In the center of this Panorama picture you can see parts of the Port of Hanko where rather large ships load and unload goods basically all day and all of the night.
So while people are working nearby basically 24/7 you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon starring at the open sea, watching ships come and go every now and then, maneuvering between the small islands you see near the Port of Hanko.
