Helsinki - not the usual stuff

This thread is about streets and places in my home town. When the weather gets better I will make a thread about the culture, people and streetlife of Helsinki, but for now this will do. Enjoy and please comment!

Great pics, nice city!
Not the usual stuff indeed. Very urban, I must say.
Hope to visit your city next year, togetter with the Baltic states.

great pictures!! I sure do miss that place, I've walked down a few of those streets in the pictures and they sure bring back great memories of such a beautiful city. One of my favourite cities I've visited. My brother lives up in Kouvola so I am going to have to plan another trip out there again soon!!

I used to get off on that busstop before I noticed there's a closer one to the metro station. It's good that their giving the area an overhaul in the years to come, it's very dead these days.

Nice pictures, some new views for me as well.

^ I have to say I disagree, the two building in the first pic are two of my favourite in Helsinki. They donīt have much detail and such but they certainly have their own charm.

Nice shots, especially the one of the cathedral. It has perfect exposure.

well i've seen shots such as these before, but still Helsinki looks very clean and charming. I bet the Xmas atmosphere is great and summer is just wonderful.
