Go to Helsinki.
Two years ago, Helsinki was 2nd place according to the New York Times’s article for places to go in 2012. And it still was a buzzing discussion over the holidays. I believe that it has to do with its originality. 99.9% of their stores are Finnish/Nordic owned. Helsinki just opened their first Starbucks and Burger King just last month! Incredible and quite unbelievable. Another fun little fact: Their capital Helsinki is one of the newest European capitals.
