A view of Tehtaankatu

Tehtaankatu (Swedish: Fabriksgatan) is an east-to-west street in southern central Helsinki. The street travels in west from Eira and Punavuori to Kaivopuisto in the east. Its western part is considered the border between Eira and Punavuori, whereas in the east it separates Ullanlinna from Kaivopuisto districts.

Since the end of the Second World War, the Soviet and later Russian embassy has been located in Tehtaankatu, and the name of the street has been commonly used as shorthand for Russian influence in Finland, especially during the Soviet era.
