Häme Castle

I'm still very much alive though I have not been writing a blog for a while and there are great reasons for that: I've had a lovely summer vacation and I've been in going all the time like right now I'm  sitting on the train while writing this. I try to revive the blog a bit by bit and there is a bunch of pictures waiting for. 

Unfortunately all good ends in due time and so this vacations is coming to an end and I would lie if saying that it's nice to get back to work. It's not, but I think this feeling is quite common and I don't give much power to it. Instead I try to think of those nice things which I see on the horizon like festivals that we will attend in two weeks and plan on the new adventures. 
 One remarkable memory from the holiday is that we decided to visit Hämeenlinna with my beloved. So many years have passed since I last visited there so I wanted to visit my favorite places of the city: the castle and Aulanko. I like old Finnish castles and it's always a pleasure to get to visit there. The history of the castles enthralls me and it's interesting to think of which kind of living occurred there back then. 
The white room (actually king's room) is my favorite place of the castle. A piece of wonderful architecture which is not done these days. I would live in here with all my heart. 

The second interesting and really beautiful location in this town is definitely Aulanko. As a kid I always wanted to stop by here if we passed by the city. My eyes still love the bear sculpture and I'm convinced that this love never disappear. 
I would have liked to visit also Holy Cross Church Hattula, but it was already closed. I try to pay a visit there later. 

By the way I drove to Hämeenlinna and back and now I can say that my skills are coming back. I have been driving a lot recently and to be honest I have a small fever to get a car of my own (but I won't).

  1. Mekin käytiin Hämeen linnassa maanantaina ja hetken mielijohteesta myös Aulangolla tuli pyörähdettyä. Aulangolla oli tullut aiemmin käytyä joskus muksuna ja se teki nyt tosi suuren vaikutuksen. Täytyy joskus tehdä Hämeenlinnaan semmonen reissu, että keskitytään vain Aulankoon :)

    1. Aulanko syksyllä voisi toimia myös hyvin kohteena. Jotenkin en ole aiemmin tiedostanut kuinka lähellä Hämeenlinna on ja sielläkin on nähtävää :P Aulanko on ollut lapsesta asti mieluinen paikka <3
