History of House of Adventure
Kallahti is an old villa district of Vuosaari. It simultaneously represents the new and the old: dense urban construction, the seascape and shore landscape, the built environment and nature.
The waterfront route ties the areas of Kallahti and Aurinkolahti together, and author Zacharias Topelius himself took the sea route when travelling to Kallahti in Vuosaari for summer excursions.
Villa Barrdoft, the Adventure House’s home base, is a historical villa built by Colonel Georg Didrik von Essen in 1911–1912, making it more than a hundred years old.
