Chicago to Helsinki
Bid farewell to the Windy City and prepare to say “Hei” to the Daughter of the Baltic as you board your Chicago to Helsinki flight.
Swap deep-dish pizza and hot dogs for Baltic herring and blini. Replace Chicago cocktails with the pine tar liquor of terva snapsi and shots of salmiakki. Change from soulful jazz music to uplifting Nordic folk music. Switch Sears Tower and Millennium Park for Helsinki Cathedral, Suomenlinna, Esplanadi Park.
Chicago and Helsinki are both large sporting cities and both have a keen love for ice hockey. Whereas baseball, basketball, and American football draw out the crowds in Chicago, Helsinki sports fans prefer soccer.
As both cities are located in the Northern Hemisphere, and each has similar weather conditions in the same seasons, packing the right clothes for your trip shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Take warm clothes for the winter, light-weight garments for the summer, and a mixture for spring and fall. Dress comfortably for your Chicago flights and step off the plane ready to explore Helsinki.
