Helsinki: la Ciudad Blanca del Norte

Helsinki, the capital of Finlandia, is called the White City in spite of its dominant colour is not actualy white, but grey. At the first sight it is not an impressive city, but once you are strolling around more calm you discover its streets full of Finnish Art Deco buildings and some awesone places, such as the Ortodox and Protestant Cathedrals, the market next to the see, the pedestrian streets with cafes and shops...

En un primer vistazo no es una ciudad demasiado impresionane, pero una vez que paseas con calma discubres que sus calles están llenas de edificios de Art Decó finlandeses y algunos lugares bonitos, como las catedrales Ortodoxa y Protestante, el mercado junto al mar, las calles peatonales con cafés y tiendas...

We stayied four days in town, but with one or two days is more than enought to visit the main spots and strol around. In fact we used the rest of the time to visit other places within Finland.
