      I have an upcoming meeting with a friend in Helsinki. She is not from Helsinki, and is not very often there. I want to take her out from the most famous downtown. What I would like to know is, what cafes in for example Sörnäinen, Helsinki, can you recommend very much? I want it to be something really nice! I'm really not for chains, so don't tell me to go to Picnic or something like that, haha. I don't know very much about Sörnäinen, or Hakaniemi, so I'm really in need of help. Thank you very much!

      How about Best Western Hotel Haaga? some say it's quite remote.

      And we will leave on 13 July at 11pm by flight, do you think it's feasible and worthy to travel to Tallin for day trip or overnight?

      Will we have have time to return to the center and catch the metro?

      visiting Espoo

      by mindcrime Online Now Jun 3, 2013 at 12:40 PM

      we plan to visit Espoo on sunday. Does it really worth it? what can we see there? reading about it I realize it is a big city with ugly buildings that probably is a bit boring for the average tourist and hard to navigate without a car.
      The only thing that seems interesting is Nuuksio National park that has some nice trails. I still dont know how we can reach it from Helsinki (starting from Siilitien metroasema).
      Do we have to take a bus to Espoo first? which stop? and then another bus to the park? I see 28 goes to southern part of the park but I dont know where it departs in Espoo.
