On Wednesday I decided to visit Tamminiemi. The main building there is the former official residence of Finnish presidents. Since the death of the longest serving president, Urho Kekkonen, the house become a museum in his honour.

1. But the main reason to go there was not the main building, it was the fairly rare opportunity to visit what lies behind this door...

2. The bombshelter built during the short reign of Gustaf Mannerheim just after the world war II

5. As evidenced by these rusty pipes

6. Next, I took a quick look at the famous Tamminiemi sauna, which was said to be a hotspot of politics and sauna diplomacy during the time (1956-1981) when Kekkonen was president

You can see someone important lived here, for instance by #18. The kitchen looks very retro by nowadays standards, but great they preserved this all. TFS Heikki .
