Pengerkatu

This building at Pengerkatu used to be a police station with cells and all. Nowadays it's a place to study art. There are ceramics classes and graphics classes and to dot the i's - photography dark rooms in old jail cells.

Luotsikatu

I used to live in this building in the 1990's. Now this building hosts a teddy bear hospital. Really. No kidding. Well, also Tove Jansson from Moomin troll fame lived on this street in her childhood, so I guess a teddy bear hospital fits here just right.

Katajanokka

In Helsinki you can easily find yourself in the middle of a snowy winter day in a latter half of March. Katajanokka is almost complete Jugend / Art Nouveau style part of Helsinki. There are lots of beautiful buildings from late 1800's and early 1900's.

Kruunuhaka

They sure made school buildings more interesting in the old days.

Kyllä ennenvanhaan koulurakennuksetkin tehtiin kiinnostavamman näköisiksi. Kronohagens lågstadieskola.
