Last week we had beautiful weather in Helsinki…and lots of city shadows!
Esplanadi ‘Espa‘ Park was packed of summer lovers…
People buying ice cream, slurpyum

“Espa Stage offers a rich programme from the beginning of May to the end of August.”
“Havis Amanda is a nude female statue in Helsinki, Finland. It was sculpted by Ville Vallgren (1855-1940) in 1906 in Paris, but was not erected at its present location at the Market Square in Kaartinkaupunki until 1908.
Vallgren himself simply called the work Merenneito (English: The Mermaid), but it quickly started to get additional nicknames. The Finland-Swedish newspapers dubbed it Havis Amanda and the Finnish Haaviston Manta or simply Manta. Havis Amanda is the common name used in brochures and travel guides.” read more > wikipedia
