Sometimes you don't really have to go far in order to feel a world away from things. Take for example these buildings in St. Paul off Como and Carter Avenues. This little segment of St. Paul looks like it was pulled from the Alps and dropped at the intersection of Carter Ave and Como Ave.

I had never noticed these buildings until I saw an Instagram reel that featured the buildings and how they give off a European vibe.


Find European magic on the corner of Como and Carter Ave in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood in St. Paul!

Milton Square was built in the early 1900s and then Mary Ann Milton—the first female realtor in MN —bought the property for herself in 1957! It continues to house multiple local shops and eats.

Then cross the street to the Finnish bistro to treat yourself with authentic cuisine from Finland! The pastries are heavenly and the staff is just delightful.

This area is a sight to see anytime of the year!
