At first, I didn’t pay much attention to the Ice hockey matches during last week, but then started to get pretty exciting. The semi-finals (against Russia) and yesterday final game against the classic neighbor & enemy Sweden was really vibrant. From a 0-1 to a unbelievable 6-1.

This is a goal from Mikael Granlund, against Russia, that will pass to the history of Ice Hockey.

Ice hockey championship was celebrated in Slovakia so today was a special celebration to receive to the Finnish lions.


I’ve never seen so crowded the South Harbour of Helsinki and KauppaTori marketplace.
Here a little video clip of the crowd I recorded, with the noise of 3 Helicopters that were flying over our heads.

Update: A 360º view from those helicopters:
