Helsinki

 

Helsinki is the capital and largest city of Finland.

Founded in 1550, the “Daughter of the Baltic” has been the Finnish capital since 1812, when it was rebuilt by the tsars of Russia along the lines of a miniature St. Petersburg.

Among the city’s landmark buildings is the Fortress of Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Surrounded by sea and a vast archipelago, Helsinki is at its best in the summer when the interplay between the city and nature is at its fullest.
