Plan 1: Strinberg Cafe to begin the day with an excellent breakfast on a terrasse (if the sun is shinning) or in a livingroom (yes, in a livingroom an d you can eat in the dinigroom, like bourgeois do. Then, you can eat a very good sandwich in a Pickwick cafe (or something like that). In the evening, Pravda is a trendy place to eat with your friends a good salad, listining good music. Of course, you need to dance so you just go to Teatri (but you need to be very well dressed or to have more than 24). Plan 2 : the day after you sleep til 12 and then a bath or a sauna to clean your skin (you have many places for that, one of them is the Olympic swimming pool in Pasila). A diner at Ostrobotna (maybe one of the best price-quality ratio of Helsinki) a good French wine with a big pizza or rendeer meat. You are then ready to go to the Finlandia Hall and listen Sibelius songs and hymns. After that I can drive you to Henry 13 if you want to dance again.

Nightlife in Mikkeli is fairly entertaining despite the small size of the city. There is not many clubs in the city, however it is nice because there are rarely any lineups. The small size of the city means you need only to take a taxi when it is very cold, otherwise it is only a fifteen minute walk to any of the clubs. There are some events which you must do while studying here. First of all is the cruise to Stockholm. It is very cheap, there is cheap beer in the tax free shop, and Stockholm is a beautiful city to visit. Other places of interest are Tallinn, St. Petersburg, and Lapaland.

- "Zetor": restaurant (reinder meat and salmon) + dancing bar: worth to see it at least once, typically Finnish atmosphere and fun garanteed! - More classic: "Sokos 10th Floor" and "Torni" to have a drink with a wonderful view on the city. - Trendiest night club: "Kerma" - Best Sandwiches of the city: Cafe Esplanaadi. - Place to be on the 1st of May: Kaivopuisto parc to take part in the huge picnic hold there every year to celebrate the end of the winter.

I liked the HUT Tennis Club, which organized many activities throughout the year (also night events). The music festival in the summer, Lapland at any time, and the country life in a cottage should not be missed. Sauna and ice-bathing are a must:) Best cafes / bars: Molly Malones, Theateri, and Wayne's Cafe. But many others are excellent as well! Don't miss to go to Suomenlinna, a small but beautiful Island near Helsinki (15 Min. by boat).
