On The Moomin Trail In Finland

We recently visited Finland for the first time, on the hunt for the best Moomin-related places to visit for Absolutely Mama magazine. We decided to take the scenic route to Moomin World in Turku, by starting our adventure in Helsinki with a visit to one of the popular Moomin cafes. There are now five in the city, serving up locally produced dishes in Nordic-chic surroundings. If your kids like Moomins, they will adore these quirky, Moomin-tastic cafes. There are Moomin characters sprinkled onto drinks, food is served on Moomin plates, the biscuits are Moomin shaped, you can have a Moomin tea party with the various toys dotted around the café, or relax in the reading corner with a book – by Tove Jansson, naturally! http://muminkaffe.com/en/
