Wellness for your Nokia

Nokia phones are known to operate steady and stable. Still from time to time you might face a problem with hard or software that you can’t fix yourself. In that case you are lucky to live in Helsinki and to have direct access to fast and good Nokia care.

In the center just around the corner from the Nokia flagship store on Mikonkatu you find mobile spa. They specialize on Nokia and Windows Phones. If you have any problems or just a question about your phone drop by. You never have to wait long and the friendly staff is happy to help you. And if your Nokia is not older than two years most of the services there are for free since they are included in Nokia’s warranty. And of course you can also purchase original Nokia accessory here.

You also find a mobile spa in Flamingo shopping center in Vantaa.

Cave paintings

As mentioned before you can find lots of tunnels in the city of Helsinki. Some lead to metro stations, some to parking lots, some connect shopping centers and some even connect islands to the main land. And some even have cave paintings. 

You can find them at the Vuorikatu entrance to Kaisaniemi metro station. Well admittedly they are not real. But they are a good example of what you can find in Helsinki if you keep your eyes open.

Along the shore of Munkkiniemi

The sunny weather is supposed to stay for the upcoming days. And luckily now the days are long enough to still have time for a walk after work.

The great thing about Helsinki is that you don’t even have to leave the city if you want to go for a walk. Take for example the tram to Munkkiniemi and head to Munkkiniemenranta. At the moment the ice is still thick enough that you can walk around the whole bay.

And don’t miss out on Café Torpanranta afterwards. Here you can enjoy a beautiful view while sitting in the sun having a cup of hot coffee.

In the house

The neighborhood of Kallio is has probably the highest density of bars and pubs in whole Helsinki. One of the most famous places here is Café Talo

This trendy location is a café and restaurant during the day. Try for example their daily changing lunch offers that include their really nice salad buffet. 

Talo is also a great place for drinks in the evening. You can find a nice spot for you and your friends on one of their two levels. It gets pretty crowded during the weekends though. So if you plan on going there you better be early. 

Also check their website for upcoming events. Talo also hosts movie nights, gigs and other cultural events.

If you just want to find a cheap pub in Kallio Café Talo is not the place for you. But if you are searching for a lively bar with a great atmosphere you just found it.
