Helsinki pictures. Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a laid-back Northern city on the Baltic Sea, relatively small (with a population of 500,000) compared to most European capitals. Some of these photos show you a day of the city battling with incredibly thick snowfall and -15 degrees Celsius. One might think this weather would be no surprise for a Scandinavian city, but apparently it caught the city's transport company completely unprepared, leading to a complete breakdown of the tram network due to the freezing of the switches. The rest of the pictures show the complete opposite: the Scandinavian capital embracing beautiful summer days with people lying and chatting in parks and doing all sorts of outdoors activities.
