Helsinki is a peaceful, clean city known for high quality living and education.
We’ve been here previously, but this time was special as we were able to view The United Buddy Bears international art exhibition.
We had never even heard of it, but it’s a traveling exhibit with more than 140 two-meter tall fiberglass bears.
For six years, it has been in about a dozen major cities worldwide promoting international tolerance.
The bears stand in a peaceful circle. Over 20 million people have viewed the exhibit live.
