Good Sunday morning everybody! It’s snowing and it’s cold in Helsinki. At times, it feels as if we’re living inside the snow globe. I don’t mind the cold and snow when it’s weekend and I can stay “extra long” in bed and not worry too much about running errands or work.
Seeing that you have fell in love with my first post in new series of “Visit Helsinki” posts, I’m continuing by presenting you another gem and a “must” spot when visiting Helsinki. Being born in Russia and half Russian from my mother’s side, the respect for Russian culture, food and traditions has been deeply instilled in me. I have always loved Russian cuisine but due to me growing up in Croatia, the only time I got a chance to eat amazing Russian food was when I would visit my grandparents in Moscow, once or twice a year.
If you haven’t heard of this famous chain of traditional Russian restaurants, then you’ve been missing out in life! MariVanna is a group of 6 restaurants, out of which two are in Russia (St.Petersburg and Moscow), 1 in UK (London) and 3 in US (New York, Washington DC and Los Angeles).
