It was a very emotional experience. This place is very well-maintained. the peace and solitude of this place is hauntingly beautiful. Must visit, if you are in Helsinki.

Really interesting! A cemetery looking more like a park and forest. Being on a beach makes it so unique

I do like cemetaries and this is a good one. So well maintained, a riverside walk and beautiful borders.

Even if you aren't a fan of cemeteries, believe me, this is quite a different one. You will actually enjoy this walk through this big cemetery and you won't feel the typical cemetery melancholic mood. Finish the walk on the beach, which is outstanding for...More

The older part is suitably atmospheric with moss-covered tombs amid the trees, but it's all very similar to other western cemeteries. The seaside location would be good if it weren't for one of the main bridges out of town being right opposite and making a...More
