106th issue: When to travel to Finland: Autumn

Puu Vallila - Wooden Vallila
(pic from here)
Why would someone want to travel to Finland during the autumn, when there's is summer that is warm and there is lot's of light.. Well, let me tell you that autumn in Finland is one of it's kind. I bet you can find similar autumns from Canada. 

Autumn is all about the colors: all the leafs color the city and all the colorful old buildings support the atmosphere. Especially I recommend you to walk around Helsinki central and its parks, but also from Kallio to puu Vallila - wooden Vallila, where they have old wood style houses. Even though puu Vallila is just 15 min away from central Helsinki (tram no. 7A), it makes you feel like you are very far from the central.

Also during the autumn the sunsets are amazing. 

Happening in the autumn?
