Hakasalmi Villa / Helsinki City Museum
The charming Hakasalmi Villa is located next to Finlandia Hall near Töölönlahti bay. This elegant building retains a tangible sense of the Empire style era and is one of the few of its kind remaining in Helsinki. The best-known resident of Hakasalmi Villa was Aurora Karamzin (1808–1902), who lived there until her death. Because of this, the building is also referred to as the Karamzin Villa. The villa is today a branch of the Helsinki City Museum with changing exhibitions.
