The Hietaniemi Cemetery is a beautiful example of peace and showing respect for the ones who have left us. It's situated just next to the sea which makes it a very pleasurable experience for a quick walk.

One of Helsinki city oldest cemeteries. A quite peaceful place to walk on. Many different parts with very old graves and newer one. In this cemetery are many famous people buried as Marshal Mannerheim and President Kekkonen to be mentioned. If you have time and desire so the cemetery is worth visiting.

At my first visit I thought it was a park! Because there was Rock the Beach festival near here. And people were walking or jogging along the paths alone or with children or dogs. Really peaceful and calm place.

Beautiful cemetery, if you are into that sort of thing, more like a park, with wide paths and plenty of space. Seems to be quite busy, but I would recommend getting in amongst the gravestones, some of them are close to 200 years old.

This was high on our list of locations to visit whilst in Helsinki as I think it's important to remember what has happened in our past and also take time to contemplate the sacrifices made by those before us. A very peaceful place.

Walked through this cemetery for hours admiring the graves and the artwork on a sunny September day before heading down to Hietaniemi beach. If you're interested in beautiful artwork and the eerie peace that comes hand in hand with cemeteries (plus on your way to the beach) have a slow walk through here.

I visited this cemetery in a rainy afternoon in early May. I am a cemetery lover and everywhere I go I try to visit a local cemetery. This one was not one of the most exciting, atmospheric or picturesque. It was just OK. A bit boring, the gravestomes weren't particularly artistic, but I don't regret the hour or so I... More

I love to walk in the area in all seasons, its beautiful and has a soothing calming quality. Take your time to stroll and explore. The shoreline continues with more sights if you feel like a longer walk, especially towards the North.

The most beautiful and oldest cemetary is located less than 15 min walking from city center. Go experience the atmosphere and continue your journey to the beach (during summer time) or have a walk into a beautiful park of former mental hospitals park called Lapinlahti.
