Katajanokka

Interesting
Naval barracks and warehouses formerly occupied the rocky promontory separating the north port from the south port. Head up to Luotsikatu to admire the Art Nouveau decorative detail employed by architects in the early 20C. N°1, the Tallberg house, and n°5 are rich in innovative elements. On the north side, the façade of the naval headquarters, built by Engel and today housing the foreign ministry, overlooks the moorings of the impressive icebreaker fleet.
