“Wonderful trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

Calm beautiful place overlooking the bay away. With pleasure, you can walk even in winter. Besides the wonderful natural views nice to look at building the Helsinki Observatory, originally designed by C. L. Engel (1834). Historically Observatory Hill (Tähtitorninmäki) was called Fire Hill because fires were lit on the hill to warn people of an imminent attack.

“Do not miss this nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

This is a park that you can reach from the harbor where the Linda Line to Tallinn are located. It is a beautiful well kept park with a nice view at the top. Don't miss the sculpture "the shipwracked" of Rob Stigell located at one of the overlooks in front of the observatory way.
