Rooftops of Helsinki

Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a fascinating city for anybody interested in architecture. Different styles - Neo-Classical (Empire), Art Nouveau (Jugend), Neo-Gothic, Neo-Renaissance, National Romanticism, Functionalism, Modernism - create an enjoyable and happy mix, particularly in the city centre and adjoining areas.

When I visit a city, I always begin with studying the rooftops. Below is a small collection of rooftop images from my visit to Helsinki this week. Most of the photos of residential house roofs are shot in Kajanokka  and Kruununhaka, where you can find a great number of Art Nouveau style buildings.
