Helsinki is a treat. Founded in 1550 this city has been the capital of Finland only since the 1800s when it was rebuilt by the Russian tsars. Can you see the resemblance between Helsinki and St. Petersburg?

Essentials in Helsinki

Suomenlinna: So-called "Gibraltar of the North", this was once the greatest fortress in the Baltic Sea and dates back to the 1700s. Today you can tour the old buildings, catacombs, fortifications and more. Entry is free but the ferry ride to reach it isn't.

Kaivopuisto: For fresh air, head to Kaivopuisto, a beautiful park by the seaside on the southern part of Helsinki. There are a number of seaside cafes to sit down at and watch the promenade and the sailboats bobbing up and down in the water.

Neo-classical architecture: Helsinki is an architectural masterpiece, especially if you love the neo-classical period. Start in Senate Square where a statue of Alexander II stands. Aleksanterinkatu and the train station are also fine examples of the neo-classical style.
