Spring in Helsinki

“Spring?” you might ask. Right now it’s a proper summer even here in the north, but since I’ve been too busy to update the blog, I thought now would be the time to post these pictures. They’re actually from the end of April, so they indeed are late.

The church in the background is the German Church in Kaartinkaupunki, where we went for a German flea market and some Kuchen.

The flowers had just started to bloom in Tähtitorninmäki/Observatory hill.

In Finland, as soon as the snow has melted and the sun is up, it’s the perfect weather for sitting in the park (possibly with alcoholic beverages).

The houses in Kaivopuisto are some of the most beautiful in Helsinki.

Some Art Nouveau buildings in Ullanlinna. Helsinki is one of the finest Art Nouveau cities in Europe, and I personally love the style.

We were walking past the St. John’s Church, when we noticed a couple were having their wedding pictures taken at the entrance. The church itself is of the Gothic Revival style.

So hopefully the next pictures of Helsinki will be summery ones and we can all forget that winter ever happened. The next post I’m writing will nevertheless be of these beauties: Gentle Folk’s Bread.
