The View From Kallio Church

The View From Kallio Church

While exploring the differences in seasons I was able to take another comparison between winter and summer in Helsinki. This time the view is from the top of Kallio Church, one of my favorite buildings in the city. From the top of the tower, on a clear day, you can see all the way down to the sea with Helsinki Cathedral standing over all the other buildings.

Sinebrychoff Tower

Sinebrychoff Tower

Not really a castle but the Sinebrychoff Tower does slightly resemble a medieval turret. Here you can see it at two different seasons of the year, summer and winter. Years ago Nikolai Sinebrychoff built a brewery and house here, and in the back garden he built his own observation tower. Today Sinebrychoff Park is open for all to enjoy, although the tower is closed to the public
