    Vantaa City Museum

    by Gili_S Written Nov 28, 2007

    The Vantaa City Museum located in the old train station building. It is very small, exhibition changes every few months and the last time I visited this museum because the exhibition was about my favourite country, Namibia.

    Walk down the river bank & enjoy scenery

    by WanderingFinn Written Feb 25, 2007
    Beautiful autumn colours by the river bank
    4 more images

    If you find your way to an area called Tikkurila in the city of Vantaa (metropolitan Helsinki area), try to find the Keravanjoki river bank. You can leave your car/bicycle in the yard of the exotic coffee house named "Veininmylly" (an old wooden mill; in red colour).

    Walk down to the river, enjoy the beautiful scenery. You can also have a picnic; there is one or two tables on the way. You come up to the asphalt when the river bank walk ends, but walk back to the other side of the river; they are both as beautiful. The whole way is not too long to walk; it takes maybe half an hour even when walking slowly.

    The area is especially fantastic during autumn, when the leaves of the trees get their colour.

    It's not known when this now evangelic lutheran church was actually built but at this same spot, there was a wooden church in 1401 and it's assumed that this stone churh was built around 1450-60. It's patron saint, St. Lawrence or Laurentius, was a deacon martyred in Rome in the year 258. Today, this is a very popular wedding church. It's part of the Tikkurila parish and there are services here every Sunday at 10 in Swedish and at 12 in Finnish.

    Mika Häkkinen square

    H��kkinen square
    2 more images

    In Martinlaakso district there is Mika Häkkinen square. This 2 time Formula One world champion used to live in Martinlaakso in his early years. In Finland has been a tradition that streets and places are not named after living people and this is one of the few exceptions.
    And little warning for visitors: The place itself is very modest and if you go to see it be very careful that you won´t pass it...
    It might be a dissappointmet for formula fans, but many tourists will visit the place anyway.
    Established 1999.

    For anyone interested in science! Hosts a changing exhibition and also has Verne theatre where you can see films about science, space, nature etc.

    Heureka is easy to reach from the centre of Helsinki by local train. Get off at Tikkurila (about 15 min travel time from Helsinki). Heureka is just a few minutes walking distance away from the train station.

    The church was built here even before the city of Helsinki was formed, it is believed to be from the early 15 century and the oldest building in the greater Helsinki region.

    Pyhän Laurin kirkko/St. Lawrence

    A bit "funny" maybe; visit the graveyard... The church is really historical!

    A nice trip by bike!

    Or by bus (eg. 611 from Helsinki, Railwaystation).
