    If you take a walk around he Töölö Bay this bridge will be on your route. A great place to follow the train traffic to & from the Central Railway Station, especially kids love it.

    This bridge with many love padlocks is located beneath the imposing Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral.

    Just lock the padlock, throw the keys into the water of the river and your love will last eternally.

    The new Jätkäsaari neighbourhood with architecturally interesting apartment buildings has grown to cover the whole area connected to Ruoholahti by the Crusell bridge. Named after famous explorer ships the four innovative and colorful Htc Helsinki offices were built next to Kaapelitehdas already in 2002. Today's trend in the new houses over the bridge varies from large balconies forming a solid glass front to elaborate wall elements like art work. Helsinki city has a policy to construct three kinds of housing in new areas, apartments can be bought, partly owned or rented to create a lively modern neighbourhood.

    The elegant white Grandfathers bridge connects the growing new neighbourhood of Kalasatama, Fish harbour to the recreational area with tennis courts and a climbing park on small Blueberry land. This island can also be reached by bus 16 from the Railway square as it is linked to Korkeasaari zoo next to it. The traffic bridge leads to the wealthy old residential island Kulosaari, a good walking destination with beautiful hundred years old villas and townhouses.

    The elegantly curving pedestrian bridge by the Aurora hospital is a good place to enter the vast Central Park full of walking paths. It also serves as easy access from the Northern suburbs for people arriving by bike to the Swimming Stadium on the small hill. There is a childrens' traffic park below by the busy thoroughfare.

    Light traffic flows effortlesly under the West Link bridge and it's underpass Below Water designed by sculptor Martti Aiha. Connecting Jätkäsaari to Hietalahti by the sea they have a form of great steel waves. When this elegant traffic solution was constructed the constantly increasing mass of trucks bringing us goods to West Harbour from Tallinn was badly ignored, the crossing above is now heavily overloaded.

    This bridge is located at the mouth of the Vantaanjoki River. The bridge is a steel-type, wooden-covered cable-stayed bridge.

    The span of the bridge is 78 m and the height of the steel pylon is 30 m.

    The bridge was awarded the Bridge of the Year 2002 award by the Finnish Association of Civil Engineers.

    Next to the bridge is a statue depicting Gustav Vasa's first wife, the young Catherine of Saxony (1513-1533), who married the King of Sweden only at the age of 18.

    Kaskisaari Bridge is a very beautiful bridge for pedestrians and bikers. If you don't want to walk from the city center, you can take a metro train (the subway) to Koivusaari Metro Station and walk from there. The nearest city bike station is Luoteisväylä City Bike Station 56. There are very beautiful and expensive houses, almost like villas, on Kaskisaari Island. The nearby Lehtisaari swimming beach is quite nice. You can walk to Didrichsen Art Museum and Villa Gyllenberg Museum, too (less than two kilometers from Kaskisaari Bridge).
