        This is a great hotel and very centrally located with restaurants and shopping centre close by. All the things we wanted to see were within walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful.

        Found the voucher for our city tour this morning and set off to the Esplanade Park to find where to exchange the voucher for the tickets. We walked the whole length of the park but didn't find where to speak to anyone. In the end someone pointed us in the direction of the tourist office and BINGO.

        Finland does good trains!! The bed was one of the most comfortable that we had slept in all year, the private toilet worked like a dream and there was even a hot shower to boot.

        ... I paid very close attention to where I was walking but it seems that that was not the case. Excellent planning skills meant that I had my phone though, so I stood outside a McDonalds and used their free wifi to get google maps up and get myself back on track.

        So I started walking again but something just didn’t feel right, I hadn’t seen these buildings before so I asked a woman who looked local (whatever that means??) and ...

        ... and crosses surround the main dome. The peak and two edges of each of the pediments are the bases for three statues.

        The interior is quite Spartan. The chandeliers, altar, and pipe organ were all beautiful; but, other than some statues, there was not much decoration. Much like the encounter with the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen, when I entered the Cathedral I found myself saying, "That's it?" With all of the hype, ...
