    This is the best place that I visited out of my two days trip to Helsinki. Rocky walls and metallic looking ceiling makes the difference to ones we normally go as church. We are lucky to witness choir and opera - it was more a practice event, but accoustic, music and the environment was excellent. Very nominal fee for entrance - escape from cold outside as well for a good time that we spent there.

    Finnish natural in a nutshell! The island is an open museum with historical buildings relocated there and a stunning natural landscape—a great place to walk around and taste the old time's lifestyle.

    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.

    Well worth the visit: excellent lunch options, meat, fish, veggie or just a nice cup of coffee with some baked delicacies.
    Try the reindeer kebab...

    When hard times seem to follow each other it is good to know that somebody will listen to your worries. The chapel is open every day offering ecumenically help from professional people regardless of your own religion or even lack of it. Recently renovated though only 10 years old the wooden building was designed as part of the Design Capital project by Mikko Summanen.

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

    Buy a day-ticket for the number of days you require at a R-Kioski, activate once and use as often as you like. Prooved very handy for following friends around during Running Day, but also just to see the whole town!
    Ticket can be used on all public transport...

    Happy Place, the open area was a buzz with street performers and street cafe. Made the place more relaxing and entertaining. If I had to paint a picture it would be picturesque.

    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 often choose Silja Europa on our return journey from Tallinn. The departure time at 12:30 is very convenient if you stay in a hotel.

    The journey time is 3,5 hours. There is enough time to do the 'tax-free' shopping and have a pleasant lunch before arrival in Helsinki at 16:00.

    The price for two including a B2 cabin was 66 euros. For that price, you would get two or three Helsinki-Tallinn-Helsinki cruises in the same cabin. One-way trips are always more expensive.

    This time, there were more people on board because it had been a Friday departure from Helsinki. Many had still the party going on and the noise levels were high.

    Our lunch at Grill House restaurant was luckily calmer. Friendly service and tasty food. It was our best meal on this trip.
