Panorama: Helsinki, Finland and Vuosaari

Today’s panorama is from Helsinki, Finland.
The sea view is captured on a sunny summer day in Vuosaari’s Uutela.

Uutela is a beautiful and prestigious outdoor area that offers the much needed greenery for those living in a city in a concrete jungle.
In addition to the jogging paths in the middle of a beautiful nature, there are also 2 grilling huts in Uutela.

Watch a video of Uutela’s sea landscape here.

Oodi library is the 100th year birthday gift from Finland and its capital Helsinki to its citizens. It took 3 years to build it. This week Oodi will open its doors for the audience and from then on it will be one of the most important sights of Helsinki and the whole of Finland. The view from the 3rd floor of Oodi will most certainly charm you, whether you’re inside or outside the library. In addition there is a lot one can do in this three-story library building.

Not knowing anything more about those 100000 books and magazines Oodi will be having, here’s still 5 more reasons to see and experience Oodi. It will be open seven days a week starting 5.12.2018 –
