FINLAND, Helsinki

FINLAND, Helsinki

As soon as the snow melts and when it gets warm – Helsinki is for sure a popular city to visit in Europe. For our stay in Finland we booked for three nights an AirBnb, walkable to the main downtown center.

When in Finland, don’t skip a trip to a real Finnish sauna. They love their saunas and I think this was one of our highlights when we were there. 🙂

One of my other favorite things to do when traveling is to rent a bike and to explore the city by bike. It is a cheap way to get around and to see lots of things, since you can stop anywhere and lock the bikes. We combined this with a bike ride to the Löyly Sauna, which is located a bit outside of the city, near by the industrial harbor.

For food we usually made our own breakfast and dinner, although you can find delicious food for a really good price – food markets, street food, etc. 🙂 During the day we usually went to restaurants or bought something on the way.
