Special thanks to Petteri Vähäkangas and Savonia Caravan https://savoniacaravan.fi
We arrive in Helsinki, meet up with our Finn friend Petteri, and pick up the motorhome. Then we spend a day in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. We start by the Helsinki Cathedral, located on Senate Square. The Market Square, the Old Market Hall, Upenski Cathedral, we take the ferry to Suomenlinna Island. Also, the Church on the Rock, the Chapel of Silence and the rooftop Panorama Bar at the Torni Hotel. We end the day by eating tipical Finnish food at Savotta Restaurant, and I give you an RV tour.

Some historical tidbits: Finland was the eastern half of Sweden, referred to as "Österland" from the 1200's until the year 1809, when the Russian empire, having fought centuries of war with Sweden managed to split Sweden in half. Österland then became an autonomous grand duchy called Finland, ruled by the emperor of Russia (that's why he held the separate title "Grand Duke of Finland"). The Russian rule didn't last very long, since the Russians always saw Finland as a part of their old enemy Sweden. Finland was left to it's own devices pretty much completely untouched by any Russian legal changes until 1899, at which point the people in Finland had already developed their own nationality, referring to themselves as Finns. When Russia tried to assert more control over the area in the early 1900's, they were met with riots which escalated in the death of the General Governor of Finland. during the first world war, the Russian empire fell and Finland became a sovereign state, slowly but steadily reconnecting back to the Nordic countries and the Scandinavian roots of the Finnish culture. That is why you see statues of Russian emperors in Finland, but at the same time have Swedish written everywhere inside the country. TL;DR Finland was part of the Kingdom of Sweden for 600+ years, then an autonomous part of the Russian empire for 108 years and has been independent for nearly 101 years at the time of writing this.

13:10 You even zoomed at the WW2 Submarine memorial.. also it’s not that blunt. That’s the backside of the fortress (it’s meant to defend Helsinki from a naval invasion). Cannons, tunnels that seem like infinite mazes and other interesting things were what you missed.

I have to admit, that bird did have some smooth moves.

The whole island of Suomenlinna / Sveaborg is the fortress.

You talked a lot about the cruise ship being in town, and there being a lot of tourists because of that, but that is pretty much every day in Helsinki, because Helsinki is actually the busiest passenger port in the world. There are 3 main cruise ship terminals, the Katajanokka terminal, which you passed and where you saw M/S Viking Gabriella, the Olympia terminal, which is on the opposite side of the harbor, and Länsiterminaali in Jätkäsaari, Western Helsinki.

Also love the video. Thanks for showing it to us Americans. I think a lot of Americans think all the other countries are just dangerous.Where in real life they are beautiful and just as safe and clean.

Wow! What do I say? Helsinki is a beautiful community. Their architecture, their idea of calm, silence, and a place to go in the hustle and bustle of life, genius, and their electric streetcars, genius......their classical voices are to die for, and acoustics were excellent, (the sound of angels) and what a job you did Robert. Be proud...Good work! CDH&CDH
