The maritime city of Helsinki is a unique fusion of a modern metropolis and an idyllic small town. It is only a short hop from urban city life to the tranquillity of the archipelago or the silence of the forest. The attractions of the Archipelago, the historic buildings of the city centre and the greenery of Helsinki’s parks make the city a very attractive place to visit.

Helsinki is the vibrant heart of Finland's economy and a diverse centre of her cultural life with its restaurants, shopping malls and historic buildings. By attending Helsinki’s cultural activities, you get to see the city’s wonderful attractions at the same time: Opera and ballet at the Opera House on the banks of the Töölönlahti bay, theatre at the National Theatre, which was built in the shape of a medieval castle, art at the Ateneum and Kiasma, sports at the Olympic Stadium (built for the Helsinki Olympic Games) and the Swimming Stadium. In the city centre there are more shopping places than you could imagine, from traditional department stores to major shopping centres and unique boutiques.

Charming cafés with melt-in-the-mouth delicacies can be found throughout the city. The city’s restaurants offer culinary experiences, from the flavours of Lapland to ethnic food and fine dining. The city’s nightlife has something for everyone from cosy pubs and glittering nightclubs to international casinos oozing with sophistication.

The landscape of our capital is characterised by the nature of its archipelago and the greenery of its parks. All in all, the Helsinki archipelago has more than 300 islands, many of which are accessible by ferry. On the islands, you can enjoy the nature of the archipelago and the fresh sea air. Worth visiting are the historical maritime fortress of Suomenlinna and the lush and verdant Seurasaari outdoor museum. For a capital, Helsinki is a green city with more than 6,000 hectares of parks. The parks range from classically shaped city parks to Keskuspuisto (Central Park), which starts from the centre of the city and covers an area of ten square kilometres.

Established in 1550, Helsinki’s culture has been influenced by major powers of both East and West. Swedish King Gustav Vasa founded Helsinki at the mouth of River Vantaa in Forsby, the site of the medieval village of Koskela. In 1640 Count Per Brahe the Younger moved the city to the its current seaside location, where for instance the Senate Square stands today. The city's importance began to grow when construction of the fortress of Suomenlinna was started off its coast in 1748. The fortification work increased the number of inhabitants and the garrison of the fortress boosted the city's social life, commerce and shipping. Russian troops occupied Helsinki during the Finnish War in 1808, and in the same year a great fire destroyed part of the city. Helsinki became the capital of the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1812 and the capital of the independent Republic of Finland in 1917.

Helsinki has plenty to do and see for those interested in shopping or culture, as well as those travelling with children. Its relaxed atmosphere and unique people make Helsinki an easily approachable city. For your trip to Helsinki, choose accommodation in one of the capital’s Radisson Blu Hotels: The luxurious Plaza in the city centre, the modern Royal near the entertainment facilities of Kamppi, or the unique Seaside in the Ruoholahti urban port setting. The hotels’ carefully considered furnishings and quality services make your stay luxurious. When you want a successful city trip, choose Radisson Blu.
