Our first meal in Helsinki:
Christmas Market (one of my favourite reasons for visiting Europe at the end of the year):
Turku Cathedral (Turku is the old capital of Finland):
Turku Castle, which dates back to 12th Century:
Some of the other sights around town:

We took a tram to Market Square and Vanha Kauppahalli (Old Market Hall).
Helsinki Orthodox Cathedral (love the beautiful reddish brown tones of the building):
Temppeliaukio Church aka Church of Rock:
That’s all folks!
