The Best of Helsinki introduces the key sights of Helsinki, and local activities that can be as exotic as the unique culture of this Nordic country. Also local favorites that include events, places and tastes that few foreigners know about are explained in the travel guide. The book is a visual guide to the city, featuring plenty of maps and photographs for tour planning, for quickly absorbing the elemental information about the key places, and for navigating the city.

Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is located by the sea, and surrounded by a geographically large, but scarcely inhabited country that leaves plenty of space for wild forests and clear water lakes. The metropolitan area is home for 1.3 million people, but the city itself is relatively compact and easy to explore on your own. Helsinki is a modern Scandinavian city dominated by the country’s unique culture between the east and the west, Nordic architecture, buzzing nightlife and bustling business.

The Second Edition of The Best of Helsinki introduces new destinations with all content checked and updated. The guidebook provides valuable tourist information for the destination, and cultural tips from local people that contribute to making travelers’ stay in the city enjoyable.
