Say see you later to Scotland’s Dear Green Place and prepare to say hello to Finland’s capital as you fly from Glasgow to Helsinki.
Trade football for ice hockey, Gaelic folk music for Nordic folk songs, and whisky for vodka. Exchange Glasgow Necropolis, Kelvingrove Park and the People’s Palace for Kaivopuisto, the Finnish National Theatre and Temppeliaukio Church. Switch haggis, potato scones and Scotch pies for the sausage soup of siskonmakkara, pyttipannu (pan-fried potatoes and sausage) and the summertime favourite of fried vendace.
Both located in Northern Europe, Glasgow and Helsinki share similar seasons. While the temperatures in Helsinki may be a little cooler than in Glasgow, you shouldn’t have too much of a shock, weather-wise, when you step off the plane.
