Geocache Description:

Ikivanha Sofiankatu Helsingin sydämessä on tunnelmallinen ulkoilmamuseo. Se esittelee katukiveyksiä ja kadunkalusteita 1700-luvun lopulta 1930-luvulle. Katumuseo palkittiin erityismaininnalla Vuoden eurooppalainen museo 2002 -kilpailussa.

Kadun varrella toimii myös yksi Helsingin viimeisistä yksityisistä korttelielokuvateattereista. Kino Engelissä esitetään eritoten eurooppalaisia ja aasialaisia laatuelokuvia.

Purkkiin saattaa mahtua pieni geokolikko, mutta ei kynää. Ota siis oma terävä kynä mukaan! GPS-kuuluvuus on heikko, ellei olematon.

In English:
The old Sofiankatu in the heart of Helsinki is a cosy open-air museum, which presents street pavements and street furniture from the late 18th century to the 1930s. The Street Museum was specially commended in the European Museum of the Year Award 2002 competition.

Kino Engel, one of the very few independent movie theaters in Helsinki, is also located on the same street. The theater focuses on European and Asian quality cinema.

The canister may have room for a small geocoin. Nevertheless, bring your own sharp pencil! The GPS accuracy is poor, if not next to zero.
