Kallio, 00530 Helsinki, Finland
Kallio District in HelsinkiIf you are looking for where the bohemians roam free, your best bet is to head straight to Kallio.
Located in the east of Helsinki, this district primarily caters to a low-budget student, artist and immigrant population.
The general vibe is that of bohemianism and liberal-mindedness. It’s strategically on the other side of Pitkäsilta Bridge, which originally served as a divide between the rich and the poor.
However, the neighborhood has evolved into a nightlife-heavy hub and an artistic mecca for Helsinki locals.
While Kallio is a bit of a hike from the city center, it’s definitely worth a visit during both the day and night.
