Round The World and other travels

June 2006 : Helsinki

This was my first ever visit to Finland. While definitely enjoyable, the weather was disappointingly chilly for June.

The 2 Cathedrals & Senate Square

Other views


As a classical music fan, I certainly wanted to include a visit to the Sibelius memorial. Apparently the mask was added at the insistence of the sponsoring committee, which did not appreciate the original, abstract design. Although not adjacent to the memorial, the city's appropriately named concert hall deserves inclusion here also.
