Helsinki Overview

Helsinki

Known as the Daughter of the Baltic Sea, Helsinki sits on the tip of a peninsula and spreads out across 315 islands. Before it was the capital of Finland, it started out as a small Swedish town, founded in 1550 by King Gustav I of Sweden. Through the centuries, control of Finland moved between Danish, Swedish and Russian hands, and it was a key ally to Germany in World War 2.  Modern Helsinki is typically Scandinavian – clean, pretty and progressive, with a cosmopolitan mix of people from all over the globe flocking to enjoy its high standard of living. Overlooked and underrated, Helsinki is ideal for our most inquisitive travellers. Get in touch today for more info.
