Enjoy Europe’s longest days in Helsinki

Enjoy endless summer nights in Finland

If you really can’t squeeze enough into your day, Nordic Europe is where you need to be over the summer. Head to Helsinki in July, and you won’t be watching the sun set until gone 10.30pm. The Finns are adept at enjoying the long days, particularly in the neighbourhood of Kallio. The former working-class district, just over the water from the city centre, is home to a slew of new restaurants and bars. Here, old-school eateries and dive bars rub shoulders with newcomers, such as the design shop café Made in Kallio and bistro Ravintola AlppiTori, a great place to try Finnish comfort food. Kallio’s bar highlights include the converted cinema Pacifico and the Musta Kissa lounge, where you’ll find live music and work by local artists. Open since 2008, the Flying Dutch is an older offering, but shouldn’t be missed: the deck of the former boat is a fine place for a sunny pint. Clear your head the next day at new sauna Kulttuurisauna, before jumping into the harbour waters to cool off.
