I will be arriving by flight in Helsinki in the afternoon on 21/6 and fly off in the evening on 23/6. I just found out my short stay in Helsinki coincides with the Summer Solstice weekend which may throw my travel itinerary upside down. I believe Helsinki city will be deserted with most Finns head to countrysides and shops will be close at 12pm on 21/6 and the whole day on 22/6.
Will tourist attraction places are closed during the solstice weekend? How about eateries and public transport? Will big shopping centres be opened on 23/6 (sunday)?
Any suggestion how I can make full use of my short stay during the summer solstice weekend?
