Vantaa is located just to the north of Helsinki. It is like a suburb of Helsinki. Most of the people who live in Vantaa work in Helsinki, shopping in Helsinki and going out in Helsinki.
Vantaa official web site including tourist information available also in Swedish and English.
I found this sight in a normal residential area in Vantaa... some snow covered pine trees.
If they had planted the spruce tree instead it could have become really nice christmas trees.
Favorite thing: Since Vantaa is located so close to Helsinki, it's a good place to visit if you want to watch some landscape views, and still be close to the big city.
