That's good afternoon in Finnish.
Welcome back to French Madame's third stop along the Baltic Sea: Helsinki in Finland!
Helsinki is Finland's capital and biggest city with about 600,000 inhabitants.
The Finnish language is immensely peculiar;
"Minä puhun vain hyvin vähän suomea."
I only speak very little Finnish.
Notice how many Ä's they use?
See you later!
Anyway, we started our day in Helsinki with a walk through a parc.
We then walked to the most popular site Helsinki has to offer, Helsinki Cathedral.
Built under the reign of Russian tsar Nicholas I.
On top of the steps.
Panoramic view from Helsinki Cathedral.
Then we went to my favorite church, Uspenski Cathedral.
This church is set upon a hillside, overlooking the beautiful city.
I love the gothic-style building of the church.
When you've seen many churches, they all become similar but this one is truly one of a kind.
Of course Helsinki is situated near water.
And yet again, I ate...
Mint - brownie ice cream sundea.
&nd a complete dessert buffet!
Miami Vice: piña colada & strawberry daiquiri.
Next stop: St. Petersburg, Russia!
