As a city, Helsinki hugs the shorelines of the sea. There are lot of places to spend time on the shores and enjoy a picnic in the summer. Or go for a run alongside the sea.
There are quite a few islands around the area.
The fortress of Suomenlinna is one of the more popular places to visit, whether for tourists or locals. Naturally this time of the year, the passage is a little different on the ferry than in the summer.
Come summer these places look a little different..
I really need to post more pictures of Helsinki.. So more to come. Definately!
