Day 1: Helsinki Take a taxi to your centrally located hotel upon arrival. Welcome to the city where East meets West. Through the years of foreign rule, Helsinki has developed into a unique metropolis where extraordinary architecture stands side by side to natural beauty. Try Lappi restaurant for genuine Sami specialties or Konstan Möljä for traditional Finnish cuisine. If you feel like something Russian, try the romantic Babushka Ira. This restaurant is small so calling ahead for reservations might be a good idea.
