Anyway, check out some of the gorgeous pics I managed to take in between meetings. If you do plan on going, I highly recommend Emo for a nice meal out. Opened recently, it’s helmed by Chef Pekka Terava and is the sister restaurant to Olo which was ranked as Finland’s best reso by the Best Restaurant Guide. Other must see places include the Marimekko flagship store, Rock Church, the market place and the design district. The museums here are quite small (literally about a floor or so. I managed to hit two museums in an hour.)so definitely try to check them out. Foods to try include reindeer, bear meat and tons of fish. I love that Helsinki is so intimate where you can pretty much walk everywhere and as you can see the weather was GOREGOUS. We actually only had about half a day to sightsee but still manage to hit a lot of places as you can see from the photos. Finally, love love LOVED the blue skies. Why can't we get skies like this in Honkie?
