Helsinki Local Customs: 160 reviews and 166 photos


Ok, once your are in a library or the Academical Bookstore, please do not forget to get yourself a book about Moomins. You (if you still have at least a tiny bit of children's spirit in your soul) or your kids will love their poetic stories :) On the picture above is Tove Jansson, the author of the stories and the illustrations. See and for more information.
