(No, seriously. The bar is atop a hotel tower. You go up a secret spiral staircase.)
In case you didn't believe me. (Would I lie to you?)
Prices to match but hell, it was my birthday.
Later I strolled down to the Design Museum but hit a jet lag wall and decided to eat dinner early and save design for tomorrow.
Juuri is a casual locavore restaurant specializing in saapas, Finnish tapas. (Pics to come.) I did miss a glorious sunset.
What can I say about Finland except that dessert with a prix fixe is licorice, two ways?
This morning I had delicious breakfast at a cafe Roger recommended followed by the Design Museo where I learned more about the history of Finnish design. A few favorites you might recognize.
But saving the best for last, Wednesday is women's day at the historic Yrjonkatu pool. I splurged on a private cabana with a robe, up on the second level.
Two saunas, a divine herbal steam room, and a clothing-optional Olympic pool. No photos but here's what it looks like. You should see my backstroke.
I'm about to board the overnight ferry to Tallinn. Delicious details tomorrow.
Helsinki, you were grand.
