In our quest to get the complete picture of the Scandinavian capitals, my daughter and I had some quality time in Helsinki last July. Being a bit spoiled in Stockholm last year, there was still a lot to be appreciated.
We met with a clean and charming city decorated with Finnish art deco architecture, incomprehensible words, friendly people (all look-a-likes ;-), sculptures and design. Just outside town there appeared a lot of unsophisticated nature to be seen.
In a time that summers tend to get warmer, Helsinki and its surroundings could very well become the place to be in the future!
