HELSINKI BY NIGHT, OUR FAVORITE TIME TO STROLL AROUND THE CITY IN THE SUMMER:
Midnight in June, a footbridge to historic Katajanokka neighborhood
Katajanokka, Uspenski Cathedral,
Midsummer night in Helsinki.
Night scene from Katajanokka in Helsinki:it looks almost like an old movie. Meeting in the Helsinki night, on Katajanokka. Partial view of Finland's Presidential Palace to
the far right.
Katajanokan Kasino Restaurant's garden patio by the water is a lovely spot for lunch or dinner, during a warm summer day. One of the nicest patios in Helsinki, in our view.
