HDR photo of Tamminiemi villa in Meilahti district of Helsinki, Finland.

 

Villa Tamminiemi used to be the official residence of the President of Finland. It is a mansion by the sea next to the idyllic Seurasaari island. The little building on the left hand side is sauna. When president Urho Kekkonen resigned in 1982 the residence was changed to Kekkonen’s private home and when he died in 1987 the mansion was made to Urho Kekkonen’s museum. One of the three current official residences of the President called Mäntyniemi is nearby. There’s of course the Presidential Palace too located in the downtown area. The last residence is Kultaranta in Naantali and it is used for summer residence of the President.
