Boat Watching in Helsinki's Port Area
Because Helsinki is a port city, I couldn't leave the walk along the coastline out...
At some point, Helsinki looked a very little bit like Stockholm.
There's not much to comment about this, better view the photos.
Thankfully my hotel was situated in the port area, so it was easy to discover the nearby ships and other attractions.
What I didn't like about this part of Helsinki was the fact that anyone could literally walk into the sea - no lights, no fences, nothing was attracting the attention. I didn't see a single "hey be careful" sign anywhere...
Here are several photos of what I saw in this area...
Old industrial area blends into the residential quarters
A huge crane in the port. I could even imagine a luxury apartment up there.
This was my favourite sight of Helsinki's port area
Mini boat. I guess it's analogous to the small car.
The beautiful red ship is actually a restaurant!
Huge ship propeller at a restaurant's entrance at the harbour
Beautiful sailing yachts in the harbour
Old buildings along the coast... this sight somewhat made me think of Stockholm. It's a bit similar.
Beautiful luxury motor yachts
A rescue boat, perhaps...
There was quite a substantial number of motor yachts (look: behind the red boat)
I love catamarans!
Actually, I think these are more abundant in warmer waters.
