Here’s where people take a cruise to places like Tallin in Estonia, Stockholm and St Petersburg in Russia. We didn’t do that as we wanted to experience Helsinki fully and had limited time. But there is a beauty here that I am so happy to have experienced. When the clouds part and the blue sky and a bit of sunlight is revealed. Then everything practically glitters. During the afternoon sunset the sky turned a beautiful pink and blue. And I think the red Viking Line Cruise Ship is just so majestic and seems of a different world. With the Russian style Church in the background it looked even more other worldly. I didn’t know before that Helsinki was under Russian rule for 100 years. Made me think the whole place must be glittering in summer and no wonder it’s the high season then. But I loved coming in winter as the cold was so refreshing to me.
My photos are chronologically backwards, as I found the sunset so beautiful and had to put them up first. The water is so beautiful and I am guessing this is the Baltic sea?
