Mr. NC and I will be heading off to Helsinki for a quick trip the first week of October. We're going over to watch the season opener of the Carolina Hurricanes vs Minnesota Wild. (And before you hockey naysayers ask, yes, we do consider flying overseas to watch two hockey games a good use of our time and money. ) This is going to be a REALLY fast trip with not much free time, but what would you consider a "must see" in Helsinki? Shopping suggestions are always welcome in addition to more educational ideas. I saw something about the Arctic Ice Bar which looked kind of cool, but is it really worth 10 Euros? And woo-hoo, we will be there during the Baltic Herring Fair. Thanks in advance for any and all ideas!
