Helsinki
The Essential
Highly recommended
Of fairly recent origin (Helsinki's current site was only settled in 1640), and the capital since only 1812, this "daughter" of the Baltic Sea, which penetrates it from every side, is a city of contrasts. It is quiet yet bustling, urban while enjoying the sea breeze and woodland scents, and architecturally both classic and contemporary. The capital of this small country has made a name for itself in diplomatic circles, as well as in the world of tastefully luxurious decorative arts.
