KARHU TAKES YOU STROLLING THROUGH THE HELSINKI NEIGHBOURHOODS

In 1916, Karhu was founded in a small workshop in downtown Helsinki. As Karhu expanded the product offering and distribution, they never forgot their roots. To pay homage to the city that shaped Karhu, they present the “Neighbourhood” Pack.

In our selection here in Beamhill we have three seasonal inspired colours  for Albatross 82 and Champion Air styles that represent distinctive Helsinki neighbourhoods of Kallio, Eira, and Kruununhaka.

 

Situated in the northern part of the city centre and located atop of a hill, Kallio is known for its steep streets. The neighbourhood’s name can be directly translated to “solid rock.” Nowadays, it is mostly known for being the liberal and youthful area and the hub for the Helsinki nightlife with a great selection of restaurants, bars, and clubs. The neighbourhood’s landmarks are the impressive Kallio Church and Bear Park (Karhupuisto Park).

The neighbourhood that is in the southern part of the city is known for its buildings designed by famous Finnish architect, Lars Sonck. The neighbourhood’s landmark is the Eira hospital, recognized for its characteristic yellow and red colours, which was also created by Mr. Sonck.

Right by the harbour, on the east side of the centre, you will find the Kruununhaka neighbourhood. The market in the harbour is a great place to go to on the weekend. Don’t forget to visit the famous Relandersgrund, a red light ship, which nowadays is a café, known by every citizen of Helsinki.
