we are saying goodbye to Kruununhaka and we are moving to Ullanlinna!
✻ map of Helsinki - 1907
✻ view from google maps: A where we are now - B where we are moving.living in Kruununhaka has been beautiful: I have learnt to see the city through a different perspective - to walk and to bike around and I have found places that I love. Kruununhaka is certainly one of the most fascinating neighborhoods in Helsinki: I am going to miss it a lot.
Hakaniementori - 1913:
✻ view of Kruunuhaka from Hakaniemi.luckily though - Ullanlinna is not far from here and Helsinki is quite a small town: which means I won't really say goodbye to my favourite places and I will also find some new ones. Ullanlinna has all the characteristics I like: it is an old area and next to the sea - in the southern part of the city centre.
Ullanlinna - 1905:
Kaivopuisto - 1900:
✻ Ullanlinna is next to two parks: Kaivopuisto and the Observatory Hill.the new apartment will be still in an old building - this time though it will be bigger: I am going to take some photographs as soon as we are settled in!
Note: the photographs above are taken from the truly interesting flickr group Ennen Vanhaan and from the beautiful book Muistojen Helsingissä.
