The Baltic Herring Fair

Yesterday I used my lunch break to visit the 
annual Baltic herring fair in the Market Square.

J.L. Runeberg , our national poet,
in the Esplanade Park.

The double-headed eagle,
the national symbol of Russia.

Inside the Old Market Hall

The number of boats at the fair is decreasing 
as the old fishermen retire.
30 years ago there were over 60 boats.
This year there are 23 boats.

The Senate Square

Helsinki Cathedral

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
