So what’s the deal with Punavuori?
Now Punavuori, or Design District as its known, is a district in the southwestern part of downtown Helsinki. It is known for its neighbourhood shops, community atmosphere, and lively vibe. The name Punavuori ('Red Mountain') refers to the red-hued rocks found in the area. The name was established in the 17th century. As often is the case with old Helsinki slang, Swedish equivalents were translated back into Finnish with a twist – hence the nickname Rööperi, derived from the Swedish Rödberget. The first residential suburb of the capital city first housed primarily workers, fishers, sailors, and disadvantaged students.
