Where I stayed
Sunday as usual late start. To top of Olympic tower for fine view of entire city. Then walked to Sibelius monument in park. Very imaginative and impressive sculpture. Next to Rock church. Well done and interesting. Partially built into rock outcrop. Then back to hostel. Made supper there. and so to bed.
Monday. Walk past bay and old wooden mansions to downtown city center. Helsinki Cathedral, Uspenski Cathedral, Presidens building, many more. Late boat ride to old forification on island comples.
Had long fascinating illuminating conversation with Olga Zorina young Russiahn lady from St. Petersburg.
