Pohjois-Haaga of parkways and 50's style of Helsinki

Sympathetic residential area attracts

Many of the streets are named after Finnish actors, actresses and playwrights. When walking in the streets you will encounter street names like Aino Acktén, Ida Aalberg, Adolf Lindfors, and all the streets start from the main road called Näyttelijäntie (Actor’s road).

Flowers are blooming near your home

One of the most breathtaking and popular attractions in Pohjois-Haaga is Rodopark. The beloved park has many names: Laajasuo park, Rhodopark and Haaga’s Alpinerosepark.

There are also platforms for admiring the sea of flowers.
