Rooftop views of Helsinki

The oldest fire station still in use in Helsinki is Erottaja Fire Station. It was built in 1891 and is located right in the heart of the city. The Fire Museum is located in the building and covers a space of 600 m2. The most interesting detail for photographers is the tower that rises up to 42 meters and has a 360 view to Helsinki. You can visit the tower on Wednesdays and Sundays from 4pm to 5 pm and spend the entire hour photographing! Couple of NBs: There is no lift, so be prepared to walk up the stairs. Entrance fee is the same as for the museum (2€s per person). It’s advisable to call the museum beforehand to check that the entrance to the tower can be organised (even if it would be Wednesday or Sunday).  All the photos below are taken from the tower.
