For Instagram enthusiasts interested in interior design, this unique store in central Helsinki grabs the spotlight at it, as it is located opposite the oldest retail store in the capital, Stockmann. Artech contains a wide range of interior decoration details, and you will find beautiful home contents with distinctive décor and many details for photography.
Imagine a naval castle stretching near 6 gorgeous islands that follow Helsinki. This is what you will find in this unique castle, which can be reached by train only 15 minutes from the city center. Around 800 people live near the castle and it contains a hotel, some cafes and restaurants. The castle and waterfront scenery attract photography lovers and landscape enthusiasts.
The history of this cathedral dates back to 1860, when Finland was under Russian rule and considered the main Orthodox cathedral in the country. It is also said to be the largest Orthodox religious monument in Western Europe. The cathedral is distinguished by its turquoise domes and its red color. Looking at the ceiling, unforgettable pictures can be obtained there.
Before Instagram spread, Sibelius, located in Tolo, was popular with photography. The site commemorates the country’s most famous composer, Jean Sibelius, designed by Ella Heatonen. It is an attempt to capture the essence of Sibelius’ art and is composed of a series of 600 steel tubes that form a massive wave.
For stunning visuals of Helsinki engineering, head to this part of the Ullanlinna region. The place is a street that runs 320 meters between 1906 and 1910 and has remained almost the same since then.
