This is a beautiful cemetery. I went to see Mannerheim's grave but the whole experience was one of beauty, peace, flowers, trees, tasteful monuments and respect. If cemeteries are your thing, go an enjoy.

Thus cemetery is awesome! A friend who lived in Helsinki told me about this cemetery and I'm so glad she did! It is so peaceful and artistic. You can't help but admire the beautiful craftsmanship of the graves and fauna growing out of the grave sites. Not to mention you can walk along the water with a picturesque view of... More

Having just returned from our trip to Helsinki and having visited this beautiful Cemetary I must say it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever visited. The well kept gardens and burial grounds are a pleasure to wonder through.

This is an oasis close to city center: a nice and calm place to have relaxing walk. Make sure to check the different parts/sections. There is also popular path following the shoreline at the south and west parts of the cementery: a nice stretch to include to your jogging tour.

This is the main cemetery of Helsinki. The area is by the sea and it is quite large. It a brisk walk from the center but one can easily reach it by public transport. It is very peaceful area to walk around and some of the memorials are very beautiful. Many famous Finnish artists are buried here.

This is a must see place in Helsinki. Old cemetery, they have different parts and I think most interest parts are: old orthodox cemetery, artist hill and war cemetery. Come here and spend some hours wondering around. Trees, squirrels and beautiful monuments.

We stumbled across the Cemetery by accident - which s crazy as it's huge - we were staying in an apartment across the main road, and wanted to get some fresh air on Christmas Eve as most of commercial Helsinki was closed. We thought we were heading to a "park" with a beach. It was truly magical - which seems... More

Many famous Finnish people have been buried here for example most of the late presidents. Lots of history and guided tours also provided. Very beautiful place to visit especially in the summer time. Also lots of friendly squirrels and occasionally rabbits. :)

Hietaniemi cemetery is very large, well-maintained and full of history. Such a peaceful and gorgeous way to look at Finnish history. You can spend hours there. It is interesting and very important cemetery. Highly recommend.
