Helsinki is among the most livable cities of the world! If you ask me why, my answer would be that is because of the presence of the nature. Anywhere you go in the city, either a forest, the sea or a park is always in a walking distance. On this tour, we'll go and explore how nature meets urban city life in Eastern Helsinki. We'll start from Kalasatama neighborhood, which is among the fastest growing areas of Helsinki. Kalasatama translates as "Fish Port", and is today referred as smart city, due to many innovative projects such as robot buses. From Kalasatama we'll walk towards Mustikkamaa, a small island where we'll find small beaches, forest, running trails and many locals enjoying their leisure time. We'll have a walk around the island and observe the nature, maybe you'll even have a swim in the Baltic Sea. From Mustikkamaa we have great views towards the city of Helsinki, and we'll also get to witness how the city is being built towards the east. After a 2 km walk around Mustikkamaa, we'll leave nature behind us and head back to the urban city. We'll make our way to Teurastamo District, and old abattoir which today is home for restaurants, cafés and a picnic area. We'll have a Helsinki-style barbecue at one of the open-air public barbecues and enjoy the local atmosphere. You'll get to try some Finnish food, and see parts of the city overlooked by travelers.
