Finnish style in Helsinki
Compact and easy to navigate on foot or tram, while packed with design gems, history and natural beauty, Helsinki has everything you could hope for in the perfect city break.
You'll find much more than minimalist Scandi-chic here - Finnish design strikes the perfect balance between understated aesthetics and a touch of humour. In the city's famous design district, you'll find opulence and sophistication - browse iconic Finnish design stores for style and decor inspiration, learn about the history of Finnish design in the Design Museum, and pick up colourful textiles and clothing from the city's most famous designer brand, Marimekko. Elsewhere, impressive architecture abounds - Helsinki has the largest number of Art Nouveau buildings in Northern Europe, while contemporary treasures can be found all over, such as the peaceful Kamppi Chapel.
Once you've had your fill of design, nourish yourself with some excellent Finnish cuisine. There are plenty of delicious local dishes to sample, from fresh grilled sausages, a summer staple, to soft and sweet pulla buns, seafood, and a uniquely Nordic delicacy, salmiakki, or salted licorice. There are ample bars and clubs to enjoy a drink, and in the long bright nights of the summer months, you can often find the dancefloor outside so you can dance beneath the midnight sun.
Taking time to relax and destress is a priority in Helsinki, and many urban saunas are open to the public across the city, while serene beauty spots to enjoy a mindful moment are never far away. Take a stroll through the charming University Botanical Gardens, walk along the bustling seafront, or take a short journey to Suomenlinna, once a 19th century maritime fortress spread across seven islands, and now an outstanding nature reserve.
