Arabia is a neighborhood about 5km from Helsinki City Center, where city meets nature with parks, cycle paths and nature reserves. From 1550-1640 Helsinki Old Town wasn’t far from here until it was moved to its current location. The neighborhood is home to the Arabia ceramics factory that has since become an icon of the area. Around Vanhankaupunki bay you can find great scenery, including the Power Station, and enjoy the natural surroundings.

This week’s Dogwood challenge is Transport. Riding the tram to other neighborhoods is the local way to see the city of Helsinki. The mural in the background summarises the area of Arabia, a well-known neighborhood in Helsinki.
