A work week took me to Helsinki. What a nice city, small compact, easy to walk around, good food even for vegetarians, and above all although around -4 during the day, gorgeous blue sky. A distinctive landmark in the Helsinki cityscape, is the Lutheran Cathedral with its tall, green dome surrounded by four smaller domes, the building built in 1830 is in the neoclassical style.
Pure white during the day, catching the sun rays and turning pink at night a beautiful sight. I had the extra luck of listening to a rehearsal of Handel's Messiah whilst visiting.
