New York to Helsinki
Say farewell to the Big Apple and practice saying “Hei” when you catch your flight from New York to Helsinki.
You’ve probably snapped pictures of the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and Central Park. Now it’s time to add Uspenski Cathedral, the Olympic Stadium and the sea fortress of Suomenlinna to your sightseeing photos.
Swap the hustle and bustle of Times Square for the tranquillity of Vallisaari island. Exchange hot dogs for the Finnish grilled sausages of grillimakkara, New York pizza for cabbage rolls, pastrami on rye for ruisleipä, bagels for brioche, and New York cheesecake for lingonberry pie.
