12. Het Centraal Station is een pareltje...jammer genoeg stond de toren in de steigers.
Heel wat gebouwen rond het drukke plein en de aanpalende lanen zijn van een onbeschrijflijke lelijkheid...

18. Dit winkel- en kantoorcomplex staat vlak tegenover het CS en is met voorsprong het lelijkste gebouw van de stad.

I think I took some of these pictures on sunday morning or so... :)
But indeed, although there are some nice bars and clubs, I don't think it's the most excting European capital. And alcohol is very expensive in Finland, so thousands of Fins take the cheap ferry to Tallinn during weekends , where beer is cheap and bars are plenty... :cheers:

Helsinki is no London but it´s definitely not boring. During summer the streets are crowded, and there are plenty of bars and clubs. Most European cities I´ve been to aren´t any cheaper than Helsinki either, at least not when it comes to beer.

I can agree with the first part of your reply. Like I wrote before, there are a lot of bars, clubs and cafés.
But I visited lots of European cities and capitals during the last 2 decades, and Helsinki is one of the most expensive (beer, hostels, public transport etc...) together with Copenhagen, Zurich, Malmö, Paris and London.
