The canal at Ruoholahti is just one of the many little water ways in and around Helsinki. The above picture was taken today from a the terrace area of a restaurant that sits on the canal (Faro Channelside). I’ve cycled and walked past it many times, although today was the first time I’d arrived by sea. on the land side, but never approached from the sea.
To reach the canal you have to pass by the old cable factory and under the Crusell Bridge. Both fabulous structures in their own right.
Best part about the restaurant: dog friendly – on the terrace at least… which is very typical for Helsinki restaurants.
