Okay it is a Park, and not even that pretty one. But it is one of those places where you can experience the real living city. Alcohol, sex and drugs all mixed with flowers and rainbows.

The flower arrangement in centre of part has a special history: the park was getting too frequented by "anti-social... More

This is a delightful little park in the bohemian area of Kallio. It's well kept with a couple of cafes, kiosks and shops in and around it as well as a tram stop. I was last here visiting friends a couple of weeks ago and realised that I have stayed before in the FinnApartments round the corner, so I know... More
