Second last stop of my family trip to Northern Europe. Sharing some of the well-known landmarks of Helsinki, the capital of Finland. It is not just known for being the birth place of Nokia and Angry bird (although these have made an everlasting impressions), it is also known for it’s livability, historic past, and beautiful cityscape.

A great city with lots of greenery and unique architecture that’s easily distinguishable. I find that Europe is all about architecture just because of its unique history. There are definitely more churches and cathedrals than anywhere else because of its past non-secularity. Religion played a vital role in shaping the continent and the values of its people, and quite obviously, its buildings.

Hope you enjoy the beautiful captures of this gorgeous city!
