Hidden gems in the city
Finns love their coffee (the average Finn consumes a staggering 12kg of coffee per year) and the bohemian neighborhood of Kallio is home to some of the best cafes around.
On weekends you can grab a bite to eat from Harju 8 and then catch a movie at Riviera, the coziest movie theatre in Helsinki. The best thing is, all these places are super easy to access by Voi.
