And do we have to stay in the hotel to enjoy the view ?

the13wizard Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2011
No, I didnt. its one of the most expensive hotels in helsinki.
The balcony is a part of a bar-coffee located in the top-floor of th hotel, you can easily go up there, drink something nice, and enjoy the wonderful 360-view of this lovely Scandinavian-city. :-)
Just make sure the weather is good ..

Love this! It's bleak outside right now, the darkest time of the year and not a single snowflake's been sighted. The colours remind me it's not always like this :D

Suomi is one of my favorite country's :-) And helsinki is such a quiet, great city to visit..
This photo ^ was taken from a famous building, it a hotel but you can just go up to the coffee-house at the top floor for the view - without spending any money :D , lots of tourist go there so you`ll not have problem finding it. Hope you will have a great time! :-)

- I took it from a balcony of a hotel (I dont remember the name of this hotel), but its a very popular one, beacuse from this balcony you get a great 180-view sight of the city.
