After walking all over St. Petersburg, Hubby and I flew over to Helsinki. The town is small, and we covered all of it on the first day. We spent our second day on Suomenlinna Island which was GLORIOUS!

We also got very lucky as it was the 200th Birthday Celebration of Helsinki. We were treated to a "Night of Arts" and saw hundreds of large dominos being knocked over followed by the strangest concert/performance art. They were also having a beer fest. Amazing!

The hotel we stayed in which was a former prison  
Cool benches in front of the design museum

Happy Birthday!
