Finland Travel Writing and Travel Photography
Finland has long maintained a high profile in the world of international design. Spend a day wandering the streets of the capital, Helsinki and you'll soon see why. With Helsinki due to play host to the World Design Capital celebrations in 2012, now's a great time to take a look at some of the city's most popular tourist attractions, shopping districts and hotels where design takes centre stage.
On the streets of Finland's vibrant capital Helsinki, there's less purpose in the stride of your average Finn. They'll leisurely browse the food and knick-knack stalls of Kauppatori (market square) or amble aimlessly amidst the newly uncovered greenery of the Kasvitieteellinen Puutarha (botanic gardens). Ice sheets that for months proceeding have covered the inlets of the Baltic Sea meld back to form part of its watery mass as daylight finally begins winning its ongoing battle with darkness.
