You said you had something called lihapiirakka, but that is not the same thing as karjalanpiirakka which you obviously call Finnish pirogues.

Right, that's the Kauppatori market.

Helsinki is fantastic, clean and organizated. A model to many cities of the world.

Or you can try spårakoff, the pub tram.


A 40min ride through some common tourist spots costs 8€.

Thanks for the compliments of my home city I've been living in Helsinki for all my life and I've never thought that Helsinki would look rich. How's that? We don't even have any real skyscrapers

That's probably because there's been a lot of russian influence in the architecture of Helsinki. In my opinion, though, Moscow is quite different. But St. Petersburg and Helsinki could be twins - the buildings from the late 19th and the early 20th century really look the same.

The pictures posted here over a year ago were fabolous. I've seldom thought Helsinki would have anything special to offer, but after seeing these pictures I think it does. At least it's a great city to live in.
