Seas, lakes and rivers make up hundreds of kilometres of shoreline in the densely populated capital of Finland. The proximity of water and great diversity of beaches is a defining element of Helsinki’s urban identity. The abundance of waterfront land in public use is also a special asset enhancing their appeal and livability. The book provides a lively, readable account of the history, present and future of waterfront living in Finland. Spanning from the 1700s to the present day, the featured sites provide a rich sample of high-quality architecture and attractive residential settings praised by their inhabitants. The book shows why the chosen 19 sites are especially well-loved and appealing to residents. The book is available in Finnish and English versions.
