Like them all. A lot. A bit cramped and the gates give a prison camp -feel. Dump them and it would be great.


This area is one of the nicest in terms of environment in Helsinki:

Finland always reminded me of Poland a little bit... I can see some differences but our cities tend to look very similar

Ariete - are you familiar with Hancock, Michigan? It's the only place in the US that has a significant Finnish population, thought that was pretty interesting when I visited in July. The climate of the 2 places is pretty similar I imagine.
Well those houses are definitely larger and a bit fancier than a normal house, but that isn't a rich neighborhood. It's an hour's drive from Helsinki, and as you can see on the satellite, that area was previously only dry wasteland. It's a middle-class hood.


I know of Hancock but not really much about it. Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota looks very similar to Southern and Central Finland. Similar biome and nature.

Winnipeg is a sh*thole. You are not safe anywhere in the city.

Just last week a girl was jogging at about 8:30PM in the nicest area of the city and was s.. assaulted.

This was what the area looks like:

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=win...,12.22,,0,3.39

On Thursday our indigenous peoples starting protesting and closed major sections our two main streets from 4-30 to 7 right at rushhour which caused many headaches.
Try walking downtown if you are not native and you will hear the "hey white man" used oh so many times.

GREAT CITY.

Czech Republic is also very similar. The single family homes are identical to what you posted. I love them
