Helsinki celebrations

I was in Helsinki, Finnland to visit some  very good friends there. I only booked the flights 4 days in advance so it was really spontaneous. What I didn’t really notice, was the fact that there was Icehockey World Championship right at that time… As both Germany and Denmark are rather focussing about soccer than icehockey, I soon found out, that icehockey is more than just nr 1 national sport in Finnland. Sunday was my last night before my flight back to Copenhagen, and I had an outstanding cool weekend so far… But as then Finnland won over they arch enemy Sweeden, and first Championship since 16 years (did write 11 before, sorry! 🙂 ), the entire town of Helsinki was out of control… We soon headed down to the city centre and I managed to get a few shots of the celebrating people there…

So thanks for an incredible weekend guys!
