After 2 very busy days in St. Petersburg we decided to just walk around Helsinki and explore on our own. Since it was Sunday a lot of places were closed. We visited the train station - I read an article before I left that it ranked in the top 5 most beautiful in the world. I guess it was nice for a train station but can't hold a candle to Grand Central! We walked over to the Helsinki Cathedral and Justin and I walked up the stairs to see if it was worth going in. They were having a church service so we couldn't but we peeked in the window and it was nothing special - the outside was definitely prettier. Then we headed over to an open air market and did some shopping! Justin and Dad headed back to the boat and Mom, Leslie and I did a little more shopping and then decided to call it a day!
