If you go down to the woods today – The 6 best nature destinations around Helsinki

Finland is the most forested country in Europe, meaning that you don’t need to venture far from central Helsinki to go down to the woods. Here are six places within easy reach of the capital where you can experience the Finnish forest at its peaceful best.

#momentsaremore #laskiaispulla #semla #stgeorgebakery #myhelsinki #heleats The history of Yrjönkatu 13 plot is rich with grand architectural plans, only some of which were ever completed. A monumentally different era of development began in 1890 with the four-story, Neo-Renaissance stone building designed by architect Onni Tarjanne, a leading architect of his time.

#designhotels #stgeorgedesignmarket #momentsaremore #finnishdesign World renowned for its bold designs, Lapponia Jewelry is Finland’s most iconic jewellery brand. If you’d like a taste of Lapponia, head to the Wintergarden, where we now have two delicious Lapponia-inspired cocktails on the menu: Lapland Gold and Space Silver.
For the Lapland Gold collection, Lapponia’s designer Björn Weckström drew inspiration from the shape and matte finish of gold nuggets from Finnish Lapland. Gold, however, comes in many different forms—in Lapland, the much sought-after cloudberry rivals its metallic counterpart. It’s no wonder the distinct flavour of this Nordic berry was the obvious choice for this shimmering cocktail.
