I've heard that there is a Restaurant Day in Helsinki every year. It is a popular event that started in Helsinki a couple of years ago and have spread over the whole world. It's a day when anybody can have a restaurang of their own in a whole day and sell food in different ways. If I'm right there are more than one restaurang day/year. My question to you is: When is the next Restaurant Day? I would like to be a part of it.
Thanks for answer!

My dad and i are going on a Scandinavia cruise and are at a toss-up when it comes to picking the excursion for Helsinki. We have narrowed it down to 2 tours.

Thirty years ago when I was in Helsinki in January or early February we went to a park where there was a kind of flea market and also some huge ice scupltures (including a giant WC). All I recall apart from that is there seemed to be apartments across the road on at least one side of the park. I think it was a Saturday, the stalls were selling new items displayed on long tables - clothing craft, jewellery etc (not a flea market). I am sure it was winter as there was snow everywhere and my feet were frozen! Does the market or the ice scuplture display still exist and if so, where is it and when is the market held?

How big are the ferries to st. Petersburg? I am not a cruise person and the few times I have been on hydrofoil type boats in was nautious (sp?) by the time I got off. If we did this, it would be perhaps next summer, so I'm guessing the sea isn't too horribly rough then.
