After a weekend in Riga, Latvia and Tallinn, Estonia, we took the ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki to catch a flight back to Germany.
Helsinki was just okay. Too many cars, and the entire downtown reeked of sewage. (We walked a good few miles and did not escape this scent. No, it was not us!)
There is a farmer’s market along the waterfront where we got some cute jewelry trinkets and ate reindeer and crepes. We stopped by Molly Malone’s pub closer to downtown and saw some awful dancing children in traditional garb. Very crowded, too many cars, likely a hip place to live but it couldn’t hold a candle to the fantastic time we had wandering the cobblestone streets of Latvia and Estonia.
The airport would be okay if it was twice as large. Not a seat to be found anywhere, and this was a Monday around dinner time, which is not typically peak time.
Overall I’m glad I can check Finland off the list of countries I’ve visited, but I’d be just fine if I never went again.over 4 years ago
