Visiting the Bygone Times

I am no longer in Helsinki, but I still have many things from there to share. I finally visited the hidden treasure, which has been on my shall-do list forever. It turned out be a rare jewel.

It was build by a Sailor's widow and eventually sold to a Burgher. The Burgher's Dancer granddaughter and her companion were its last occupants. They lived in it until 1974, when she sold it to the city of Helsinki.

Today it is a super charming mini museum with free entrance. It is almost too nice to be real.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present the Burgher's House.
