The cemetery includes a large military cemetery section for soldiers from the capital fallen in the wars against the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany: in the Winter War (1939–1940), the Continuation War (1941–1944) and the Lapland War (1944–1945) In the centre of the military cemetery are the tombs of unknown soldier and marshal C.G.E. Mannerheim. Other notable sections of the cemetery are the Jewish and Russian orthodox cemeteries, the cemetery of the Finnish Guard, the Artist’s Hill and the Statesman’s Grove.
Hietaniemi means “sand spit” and is a headland located centrally in Helsinki.
