    Beautiful church in a lovely square. It's a must in the city for its surroundings. The new architecture is unique and since it's located in higher ground, there's also a worth view.

    A small walk uphill towards the golden domes. Church looks a bit run down from outside. Inside is better, with much to see.

    I love travelling on trams and Helsinki does not disappoint. As someone who does not really know the city, there seem to be enough of them trundling around the city.

    This is our first place to visit part of our two day tour in Helsinki. Pretty one - very colorful giving that scandinavian (ok, part of central asian) look. It is a short walk from the Helsinki station. Since it is a central place - we seen political slogans or protests displays - took away the tourism spirit a little. Good one for a photo opportunity.

    We have visited this museum many times. Sometimes the exhibitions are quite strange like on our visit this time.

    On the top 5th floor was a 32-minute long video work by Doug Aitken. The screens were huge and round. It was easy to get dizzy.

    On the 4th floor was sound art by Mika Vainio. That was an even stranger experience. Empty rooms with some or no sound.

    On the 3rd floor would have been the best exhibition Mad Love by Seppo Fränti but that we saw already in June.

    The building itself and the views from the 5th floor were the highlights this time.

    Leaving coat and bag at the lockers anybody can enter to admire the exquisite building which forms a part of C.L.Engel's empire style city plan for Helsinki. The library was already established in Turku in 1640 under the Swedish rule but moved to the capital to serve the new university. On the shelves you will find books also in other languages besides the national two. It is possible to climb up the rotunda, but some chambers are reserved only for research.

    Celebrating its 160th anniversary our biggest and most famous department store is now on a slightly ascending curve in profitability as the pandemy eases. The effort to target brand conscious middle class is paying off and customers are returning to the store which has several new cafeterias offering refreshments while shopping. Outsourcing the traditional food market has helped to balance the economy too.

    This is one way to have lunch while being in Helsinki. We booked a picnic cruise to Tallinn. On Friday Viking XPRS departs at 14:15 and is back in Helsinki at 20:00.

    Two cruise tickets, buffet lunches, and a Lux cabin were 154 euros. I had 900 Viking boats and could use them for paying. So I got 9 euros off.

    The cabin was 72 euros. A standard window cabin would have been 36 euros. For the extra 36 euros, we got more space, bow view, and cabin minibar.

    Was it worth it? Yes, the public spaces onboard Viking XPRS are not so nice to spend time in. There is a dark bar and a not-so-pleasant self-service cafeteria.

    The buffet was quite good. New for us was that there were two warm dishes (pork and salmon) pre-set so that they were like you would get them in an a la carte restaurant. Tap wine and beer are included in the price.

    The ship was in Tallinn for only 45 minutes. On this cruise, you cannot go out to Tallinn.

    A great place to enjoy good concerts. First of all, its location is great. Most importantly, the acoustics ate great, the views are great basically from any seat. The seats are comfortable. Can highly recommend!

    The grounds are lovely and the greenhouses have an extensive array of plants (one of the largest collections of African violets). Definitely a break from the winter cold! The outside grounds appear quite nice, but of course there's not much to see in February when it's -3C. Would like to see it in full bloom, or have walking guided tours available.

    This is an excellent little museum - definitely worth a visit, especially as it's free. The exhibits aren't enormous but they are well done with lots of interactivity. I particularly liked playing with the old panorama photographs. The 'children's town' area looked brilliant for kids.

    They have free lockers and a tap to fill up water bottles.

    Katajanokka is actually an island. The Katajanokka channel separates it from the mainland, to which it is connected by four bridges.

    The area by the bridges is known as Kanavaranta. Here you can find many charming restaurants.

    Walking the streets, you can see beautiful Art Nouveau buildings constructed in the early 20th century.

    Other important buildings are the Merikasarmi complex from 1825 (architect Carl Ludvig Engel) and the Finnish headquarters of Stora Enso from 1962 (architect Alvar Aalto).

    However, the most popular sight is Uspenski Cathedral, the largest Orthodox cathedral in Western Europe.

    The Finnish icebreakers with their mythical, powerful names such as Kontio (Bear), Otso (Bear), Voima (Strength), Urho (Braveness), and Sisu (Grit) are moored side by side here.

    There is also a busy passenger harbor with Viking Line ferries to Tallinn and Stockholm.

    From SkyWheel you can have a panoramic bird's eye view of the capital. Next to SkyWheel, you can swim in the year-round outdoor swimming pools.

    There are three hotels in Katajanokka. The biggest one is Scandic Grand Marina in a former warehouse from the early 1900s. The most interesting hotel is an old prison dating back to 1837. The newest hotel is Noli Studios located in the former head office of Kesko.
