Not to imply anything untoward about the good inhabitants of the neighborhood (such as myself) I am still quite sure that this neighborhood has the highest number of hairdressers and hospitals per capita in Finland :D
It also has quite a high ratio of parks and seaside vs. concrete, but this is countered a bit by a couple of quite large streets which run through it. This means though that it is excellently connected to the rest of the city by bus and tram apart from being in walking distance of the city center. Apartments are quite expensive however as can be expected.
The neighborhood is mostly residential but most corners and larger streets have cafés, restaurants and local pubs, small stores and smaller services (such as hairdressers) scattered around them. It has a couple of cultural centers, a library, two quite large marinas and a full range of sports facilities -including two arenas, many fields, an Ice hockey stadium, facilities for watersports, indoors halls, gyms and two swimming pools! It is also home to the Finnish National Opera.over 3 years ago
