About City

The city of Helsinki, located at the Northern coast of the Baltic Sea, has stood here nearly 470 years still being a people-sized city where one can easily feel at home. It may seem like a curious choice for a holiday destination but once you get to know it, you will love it. Explore some of the best Helsinki has to offer as it must neither be exquisite nor expensive.

Helsinki is buzzing with happy energy. It is easy to get around with a public transportation day-ticket covering metro, bus and tram routes plus the Suomenlinna ferry – children under the age of seven travel for free. Transfer time is smooth: 30 minutes to and from the airport, whether you hop on a taxi, bus or train. There are comfortable yellow city-bikes for rent and ferries will take you out to some of the 330 nearby islands. Navigating on foot is easy too – it only takes 40 minutes to get from one side of the city to the other. Mannerheimintie, is flanked by institutions including the National Museum, tracing Finnish history from the Stone Age to the present. Also on Mannerheimintie are the imposing Parliament House and Kiasma, a contemporary art museum. Ornate red-brick Uspenski Cathedral overlooks a harbor. Finland is the third most expensive country in the Europe and the second most expensive country in the Europe area. December 1917 Finland declared independence from Russia, and a brief but bloody civil war ensued in the capital between conservative government troops (known as the Whites) and leftist rebel units (known as the Reds) occupying the city. Conditions soon became more stabilized, with the Helsinki parliament electing Finland’s first president in 1919. In subsequent decades Helsinki developed into an important center of trade, industry, and culture, a process interrupted only by World War II.
