Sonja, Vuosaari/Helsinki, 44
The city takes care of its streets and parks superbly. The flower plantings in the parks and along the streets spread not only in the city centre but on the outskirts of the city, too. There are numerous open playgrounds and cost-free citizen’s houses. The Helsinkians can also choose to let the city inform them of bad weather conditions e.g. slippery streets by text messages. All these little things make one feel that the city takes care of its inhabitants.
A Tip: “Keep your eyes also open during week days. In Helsinki you can find small and special embellishments all around the city.”V
