Helsinki Day

Helsinki, 15 degrees

Source

When you look at a city, it's like reading the hopes, aspirations and pride of everyone who built it. 

Today it's Helsinki Day so I thought I would color up my blog with some Helsinki related photos, taken by the talented Katja Hagelstam. Helsinki was founded in 1550, and celebrates today its birthday, but this whole year the city is celebrating the fact that it has been the Finnish capital for 200 years!

I will tell you more about what I will be up to today, thanks to the grand day, but in the mean time you can enjoy Helsinki in different settings!


Happy Helsinki Day to you all!
