Lappeenranta, Helsinki, Lahti

October 19th, 2008 by UFO in Traveling

On Thursday I was just relaxing and did not want to travel anywhere, so I stayed in Lappeenranta. After we woke up, we decided to have only a little breakfast and take a walk along the lake to the university for lunch. The weather was not so good for taking marvellous pictures, but at least it was not raining. When we finished our lunch, Pavel stayed in school for some lectures or laboratories and I walked to the lake again to enjoy the nature.

On that day I went to sleep relatively early, because I wanted to take a train to Helsinki at 8:35. As I sat down in the train, I fell asleep and woke up at the Helsinki main station. What a pleasant journey :-). In the city I walked a lot around the centre. I also visited the National museum and took the boat to the fortress of Suomenlinna.

The last city I visited during my trip to Finland was Lahti. I traveled there because I was interested to see the ski jumps. Again, I walked slowly around the centre and went to see the harbour. I did also a little bit hiking in the hills near the ski jumps area.
