Welcome to Helsinki
Helsinki is a relaxed, friendly, safe city that invites visitors to get out and explore its varied terrain on foot. Compact and easily navigable, it offers a plethora of hotels, restaurants, bars and cultural attractions all within walking distance of the centre. The city also has an efficient public transport system consisting of bus, tram, metro, train and ferry services. Its natural beauty and proximity to the sea are two additional assets.
Helsinki is also a city of fascinating contrasts. As one of Europe’s fastest growing and developing cities, fast-paced urban life and peaceful natural landscapes can be found just around the corner from one another. With its many green spaces and modern architectural gems – not to mention its sun-lit summers and cold, dark winters – Helsinki is full of surprises.
