  • Although it is not an idea of the great halls and the beautiful decorations, it is a peaceful feeling. The people who found this, the motion is self-discipline, or perhaps the whole nation's shrinking.

  • The Municipal house is open for public; with great information and brochures about the city and services, also good exhibitions happens there as well. Public (clean) toilets are available (free of charge). Good to remember that you always can go there to refill your bottle of fresh tap water. Finland's tap water ranks among the best in the world!
  • "perfectionism line" "air line" in st petersburg russia make please
  • The Bonk Industries exhibition was out of this world. Make sure to google Bonk Industries as you leave, with their free wifi. Best art exhibition I've ever seen by so much. Descriptions are the best.
  • Attended a nice function here. And per Martin Lunn's review have added some Bonk pictures!
  • Pretty eye-catching building which houses the mayor's office.
