I like Helsinki the best. It has a brilliant department store called Stockman that is in the town and it has everything example manicure, supermarket, brilliant drinks and for kids there is an amazing drink called Trip and grandi and amazing apple pie. In winter you can go there and go sking and at summer you can go in the sauna and swimming in the lake and if you go in town you can drop your laguages. And go to adventures forest to have a long walk or go sking or ride some reindeers or pony's. There is an amazing cathederal and beautiful harbour.

Things you have to do: - get fish for lunch in the charming covered market on the harbour. Freshly caught fish prepared just for you ... sandwiches, salads, steamed slices.... - have dinner at a traditional Finnish restaurant, reindeer meat with special sweet and sour sauces. It's delicious and refined - go for a wonderful aperitif which sends shivers down your spine in the ice pub/cafe.
