Port of Helsinki

This is probably a less known area of Helsinki, it’s a picture of the Port of Helsinki (Finnish: Helsingin Satama), located south of the city centre. This part is on the border between West Harbour (Länsisatama) and Munkkisaari quarter. The former is mainly used for passenger traffic, including ferries to Saint Petersburg, Russia and Tallinn, Estonia (in fact, since 2017 Helsinki has been the busiest passenger port in the world). The latter is home to the Hietalahti shipyard, of which the cranes in this picture are part.

Another impression of the Port of Helsinki is found in the WS, however I found the composition to be too messy for it to become the main picture.
