The Art department of Akateeminen kirjakauppa (Academic Bookshop) is an infinite source of inspiration. Since the store is located right in the centre of Helsinki it is easy to just drop in. The Store is designed by famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto so even if you’re not into books it’s worth visiting.

They have huge cinnamon buns here, a nice thing to split with your friends. A really finnish treat. Owed by café esplanad (where you get the same sort of bakeries), but I prefer Success for it's smaller space.

Another lovely outdoor recreation is Seurasaari Island. I enjoy walking around the island, but The Open-Air Museum of Seurasaari also displays the traditional Finnish way of life. You can't help running into some badass squirrels and mellow swans. The photo is taken in January.
