The northernmost metro station in the world

By Barbora Pilná

Helsinki, Finland: When you decide to step out of the amazing city centre of Helsinki and take a metro train to the suburbs, you may end at Mellunmäki (Mellungsbacka), the very last stop on the only metro line in Helsinki and also the northernmost metro station in the world.

And how does it feel to go to and stand on the world’s northernmost metro station? Well, pretty much like an everyday journey to work. There’s no sign showing this interesting fact.

But that’s probably the way Finns are – proud, but not showing off.
