The Best of Helsinki introduces travelers to the key sights of Helsinki, activities that can be as exotic as the unique culture of this Nordic country, and local favorites that include events, places and tastes that few foreigners know about. 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 Best of Helsinki provides valuable tourist information for the destination, and cultural tips from local people that help to make travelers’ stay in the city enjoyable.
