Helsingborg is a town in the west coast of Sweden. It’s also so close to Denmark it only takes 15 minutes to get there. By the ferry. And the ferry’s lights can be seen far on the right hand side. The downtown is right in front. The photo itself is taken from the premises of an old castle. It was built on a hill so it offered great views over the city – and to Denmark too.
Welcome to downtown Helsinki! Trees, water and darkness warmly greets you! The nearest hotel is on the other side of the fountain. Just pick your seat on the bench and sleep tight! OK, joking aside, if you step out of the Central Railway Station the next thing you see is this. What? Really? Sure. The trick is just to use the side exit. The main entrance sure leads you to the main street, shopping malls and busy street life. But if you want nature take the east exit by the tracks. It takes you here, to the park of Kaisaniemen puisto – which is among other things one of the most dangerous places in Helsinki. Enjoy!
