Great set!

A lot of the architecture looks like that of St Petersburg, just an observation.

Just curious: What is it that you liked so much to even want to move there?

Hmm...I just liked the overall feel of the city. Modern and classic architecture side by side, the cool northern atmosphere. Everything was so neat and tidy as well, much better than Germany.

Well, the cities in my region aren't really renowned for their tidiness. NL is much cleaner than Northrhine-Westfalia.

The only German city I know is Munich, I guess it's not terribly smart to generalise like that.

It looks like quite an interesting place, may be a bit too cold (don't mean the weather) and calm though. Anyway pics are great , port cities got that special atmosphere especially on the north.

Not at all. Helsinki is known for its nightlife, and in summer the streets are colourful and busy. Winter can be a bit gloomy though.

I think German cities are probably by and large still pretty clean, although it has gotten worse in recent years.
