Finnish easter!!

Helsinki, Finland

I went to Helsinki, Finland in easter, it was a great getaway :) but it didn't exactly feel like I was in another country...I understood everything!!! And I don't even know one word finnish... EVERYTHING was in swedish as well, and all the stores...got them at home!! HaHa Helsinki was a small but nice city :) I thought they would have more spectacular buildings though... but awesome to see some russian influence!! :)

Here are a few photos:
