Baana – pedestrian passage through city

Baana is pedestrian and bike passage dividing city few meters down from street level. Baana is former train track to Ruoholahti harbour but now it has been renovated for light traffic usage.

Baana was opened just few weeks ago and citizens and tourist have allready find it – thousands of people use it every day.

Baana`s eastern end is at Music house “Musiikkitalo”. It goes for 1,3 km ending at Ruoholahti. You can bicycle that on five minuts so it`s by far the fastest route through city. You can get up on the street level from many stairs along the way.

It`s not just a run-through. On the Ruoholahti end there is few activities such as ping-pong tables and basketball field.

Baana is very interesting piece of city culture and highly recommended for all tourists in Helsinki.
