Helsinki, Finland

UspenskinBrrr…… Winter has arrived.  The days are mostly gray and the blowing wind makes for cold temperatures.

Helsinki became a free nation 99 years ago winning its independence from Russia.  Ironic that we are traveling on a ferry from Helsinki to St. Petersburg, Russia without a long visa process.

We checked out the local highlights in Helsinki and headed to Provoo (the second oldest city in Finland) for the day and favored Guinness at an Irish pub called Molly Malones.

Built directly into solid rock. 

Known as Church of the Rock – Rock Church and Temppeliakio. 

I think the designers were channeling Frank Lloyd Wright.
