Wintertime parking in Helsinki

It’s wintertime in Helsinki! Snow keeps falling from the sky and cars get buried in the snow. I just arrived back to Finland being away for just one week and my car was basically buried under ice and snow.

I have a little shovel in the trunk but since my car was completely frozen I wasn’t able to get the trunk open. You can imagine how frustrated I was!

Wintertime parking in Helsinki is always a nightmare. Parking lots are full of snow and it’s much harder to find parking space. Sometimes it’s really hard to get the car out from the parking lot because snow plowing truck dumps all the snow over the parked cars.
