Fare Magazine – Issue 2 (Helsinki)

$ USD 26.92 (incl. VAT)

Fare Magazine Issue 2 (Helsinki) is out now. Helsinki is a city at its height. It is also something of an anomaly. Culturally, it is a partial amalgamate of its neighbors—and former rulers—in Sweden and Russia, but as the capital of a young and independent Finland, it is full of nascent pride and positivity. It rejoices in an entrepreneurial spirit and a belief that new projects and new legacies can be made here, even as older ones are preserved and celebrated.

Fare Magazine Issue 2 (Helsinki) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Helsinki is a city at its height. It is also something of an anomaly. Culturally, it is a partial amalgamate of its neighbors—and former rulers—in Sweden and Russia, but as the capital of a young and independent Finland, it is full of nascent pride and positivity. It rejoices in an entrepreneurial spirit and a belief that new projects and new legacies can be made here, even as older ones are preserved and celebrated.

While some cities in Scandinavia exude a “Nordic cool,” in Helsinki, there’s a collective nonchalance, and a widespread pragmatism. Helsinki’s streets are filled with art nouveau design, with the work of celebrated Finnish modernists also very much on display. Even now designers, artists, makers, chefs, and hip-hop stars embolden the city’s claim to a vibrant lifestyle.

Each issue of Fare also includes a glossary of local terms, a helpful reference point for readers as they delve into the exoticism of a new culture and city.

Fare is a new magazine exploring the heart of a city through its food, history, and community. Fare magazine is published bi-annually. Fare introduces its readers to a single city and lets its locals do the talking: taking you down backstreets and through forgotten histories, exploring neighborhoods and local institutions, and doing more than just taste the food on offer. The result is a portrait of city life and culture more thoughtful and nuanced than the dreamy conjurings that typify touristic material. Fare magazine is not a conventional travel guide; it is designed to excite and inspire, but also to educate, and each issue begins with a crash course in the city’s phenomena of place, and ends with a full glossary of local terms and histories referenced within.

Content

The sweet smells and folkloric past of a Karelian bakery
The island of Seurasaari, where deep in the woods you’ll find a centuries-old village, restored from along Finland’s eastern borders
The old-school gems of Helsinki’s restaurant scene, institutions with classic Finnish fare and interior, unchanged in nearly a century
An enigmatic bar with famous patrons where Soviet-era ideals still live
The torikahvilat, the orange tents of Helsinki’s market squares, with their famous breakfasts and apple-mash doughnuts
The history of the naval fortress of Suomenlinna, one of the largest in Europe, situated across the Wolf Isles
