Helsinki Christmas Market
You don’t always have to go up North to explore Finnish Christmas: Helsinki has a lot of unique Finnishness going on. Taking place in the centre of Helsinki in the Senate Square and surrounded by imposing neo-classical buildings designed by Carl Ludvig Engel Helsinki Christmas Market is part of Helsinki-ites’ traditional Christmas festivities. It's the oldest and largest event of its kind in Helsinki. It's a one-of-a-kind possibility to eat Finnish handmade delicacies, buy traditional crafts and meet the locals who prepare them in person.
