Travelling to Helsinki, Finland
Helsinki is Finland’s largest city, and the Finnish capital. Constructed on a series of 35 islands and peninsulas, it sits on the Baltic coast along the Gulf of Finland. Neoclassical, Functionalist and Art Nouveau buildings can be found all over the city centre, creating beautiful contrasts throughout. More than a third of the Finnish population calls Helsinki home.
Get your bearings with a visit to Kauppatori, the market square, and then take a walk up Esplanadi, a pretty street lined with cafes, restaurants and boutiques. Architecture lovers should definitely take a look at Finlandia Hall and the Art Nouveau Helsinki train station designed by Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen, which is guarded by four granite giants.
Finnish design is highly sought after, so a visit to the design museum, Designmuseo, is a must. Here you can see work from the likes of Aalto and Marimekko. Then it's on the the Design District, where you’ll find more than 100 boutiques. Pop in to the Kaupunginmuseo as well, which provides a fascinating insight into Helsinki’s history.
In the evening, settle in for a drink at Esplanade Park, a leafy oasis with a couple of hip watering holes. In terms of what to eat, meatballs and mashed potatoes is a must-try, and for dessert, see if you can nab a slice of Finnish blueberry pie. Finish your day at Kotiharjun Sauna, a traditional public sauna dating back to 1928.
