Summer season is always very busy for a tour guide like myself, which is why the number of postings drops tremendously. Helsinki receives dozens of international cruise ships from around the world and the number of cruise tourists alone approaches 800 000. I love the hustle and bustle at the South Harbor with the large market and all the ships coming and going. The picture shows the area from the balcony of the city hall. Summer so far hasn’t been great, but some days the sun was out, as was the case on the day when I took the picture.
