Wave farewell to Brum and prepare to be welcomed by the Daughter of the Baltic when you fly from Birmingham to Helsinki.
You’ll notice an immediate difference in architectural styles when you step off the plane. Birmingham is a relatively modern city, with towering skyscrapers looming over unusual “blobitecture” structures, medieval gems, classic and high Victorian buildings, Georgian and Regency landmarks and Gothic revival jewels. Helsinki, noted for its abundance of light-coloured buildings, has a blend of contemporary architectural designs, Neoclassicism styles and Art Nouveau buildings. There is a strong Nordic appearance.
Both cities also have something of a love for metal music.
Swap the Bull Ring, Jewellery Quarter, Black Country Living Museum and Cadbury World for Kamppi, Linnanmäki, Helsinki Cathedral and Kallio. Change Brummie bacon cakes, pikelets (a crumpet-like snack) and pease pudding for blinis, salmon soup and stuffed cabbage. Exchange mugs of tea for cups of coffee and mild ale for vodka.
