If you follow the boulevard along the coast direction west from the Kaivopuisto park you will suddenly find yourself in a significantly less pleasant environment – at least according to common standards. The Hernesaari peninsula is entirely covered with huge industrial halls, warehouses, cranes and building sites.
It is here that Kaurismäki has build slums for his movie The Man Without a Past (2002), obviously out of lack of real slums in Helsinki.

Although not very beautiful this area could be of some interest to photographers and for anyone wanting his eyes to rest from the sight of predictable and ordered urban areas.

If you continue walking till the end of the road you will eventually get to a warehouse which houses an ice-hockey school and a cafeteria for those who´d just like to watch.
Coffee is 1€.
