a Japanese artist has wrapped 20 trees in polka dot cloth. Yesterday, we saw a lady in a red polka dot dress posing next to one of the trees.

We've noticed that after work each day, the park is crowded with Finns unwinding from a day's work.
Helsinki Cathedral and found it this morning. It was completed in 1852 as a tribute to Tsar Nicholas I of Russia. Finland was governed by Russia for most of the 19th century and Sweden before that, so you get a mix of architecture styles in Helsinki.
