The northern capital of Helsinki is full of titillating surprises just waiting to be discovered. Our city welcomes you with open arms to enjoy its innovative urban culture, the ever-present nature and sea, and the friendliness and openness of the locals.
Located between East and West, and absorbing influences from both sides, Helsinki is a dynamic and future-oriented city that combines trends and traditions in its own special way. Layers of fine architecture, functional design, a playful and often surprising food culture, and an enormous range of events, both large and small, intertwine to form a fascinating capital that offers experiences in all seasons of the year. A high level of expertise and lively start-up culture are part of the identity of our vibrant city.
Have you felt the fresh sea breeze on your face, admired the meandering shoreline that circles the city, or watched the skaters in wintertime in the centre? Have you spotted Moomin in a shop window, been caught by surprise by a food bike selling porridge, or visited a public sauna yet? Helsinki is full of surprises. Let its laid-back rhythm take you away!
We hope you have such a good time here that you will return soon!
