Helsinki at Night

At midnight in June and July, Helsinki glows. Here, AFAR's founders stroll the Esplanadi, a grassy park and cobblestone walkways bordered by two avenues in the heart of the city, after a dinner at Restaurant Gaijin (www.gaijin.fi). In the day, Finns and tourists gather for picnics in the grass between the Pohjoisesplanadi and Eteläesplanadi which run to/from Erottaja and Market Squares. At night, the area sparkles from bars and cafes lining the park, like Cafe Kappeli (www.kappeli.fi) on the right.
