"My home city"

My home city. People are very friendly, they’re very open and outgoing.
- Marko Saaresto, Vocals

Very beautiful, and a nice city to live in. Architecture of Helsinki city centre is fantastic, and combines a lot of different things.
- Jari Salminen, Drums

Helsinki has the kind of feeling of a small town.
- Jani Snellman, Bass

Favourite places

I like the cafés and restaurants because I’m kind of a foodie and I like the coffee. There’s a nice selection of those in Helsinki. It works for me.
- Marko Saaresto, Vocals

It’s very hard to find another city in the world that is almost everywhere surrounded by the sea.
- Jani Snellman, Bass

Suomenlinna, it’s a really interesting place to visit with a lot of history.
- Olli Tukiainen, Guitar

Full of experiences

During winter there are a lot of places where you can go to swim. Yeah, definitely worth trying. It’s very cold but it makes you feel great!
- Olli Tukiainen, Guitar

Just walk around in Helsinki or take the tram. You’ll see everything Helsinki has to offer.
- Jari Salminen, Drums

Food recommendations

There’s a restaurant called Seahorse. Basically just order anything from the menu and you’ll get fantastic Finnish food.
- Jari Salminen, Drums

Grill food, some “snägäri” stuff. That’s Finnish speciality.
- Jani Snellman, Bass

Karjalanpiirakka. Very good. Lots of different way to eat it.
- Olli Tukiainen, Guitar
