Hidden New Place, so called..

Being living in Finland for almost 2 years, it doesn’t mean I know every thing. There is still uncovered mystery always appeared and amazed me.

Today, I visited a place where history begins. In this area, Helsinki was founded by Swedish king, Gustav Vasa on June 12, 1550.

The name itself, Helsingfors (in the beginning spelled Hellssingeforss) comes from 2 (two) words, Helsinge (source for Finnish Helsinki) and the rapids (Swedish: fors), which means ‘flowed through the original village’.

This place is also famous for fishing spot for salmon and trout (and, I see one salmon jumping off from dam from up to below, so awesome!)

Behind the heavy dam, if you follow the river, you can find a quiet park with beautiful view to the bridge in the autumn season.
