Kallio was the over-spill area for a city creaking at the seams. Many ordinary, working class people were being displaced. The area became dominated by low-rising housing up until the high-rises began appearing. Despite its humble roots, Kallio is home to some of the best examples of Jugendstil architecture, by some of the great names in Finnish architecture.
Home to some of the finest Jugendstil examples.
Kallio (including Sörnäinen and Torkkelinmäki) is often overlooked as a destination for those exploring Helsinki’s Jugendstil heritage but this would be a mistake.
