Welcome to Helsinki!

Helsinki, the capital of Finland tem muita vida noturna, cultura e história. The city has around 600,000 people, is a seaside city stretching out to pretty islands where green expanses are never far away. It is easy to get around on foot or using the excellent tram service. Café society springs to life in summer when people sit and watch the world go by surrounded by many architectural styles from art nouveau to functionalist: coffee, of course, is served in stylish, designer chinaware on beautiful fabrics – names such as Iittala and Marimekko are world famous.

City's interests: the old steam train journey to Porvoo, a cruise through the archipelago, a night at the Opera, and it can all be easily achieved in a short break. There are boutique hotels, designer hotels, grand hotels and private apartments for all budgets (most hotels have saunas of course – part of Finnish culture).

Finland’s capital city offers a magic all of its own when winter drops its silent white mantle across the streets and buildings. 

There is ice on the harbour, and snow on trees and statues. A hot chocolate at a bar near the marketplace, or a café surrounding Kaivopuisto Park is to be very welcome as you breathe the clean winter air and plan an active excursion.
