Helsinki is a modern European cultural city with a population of over half
a million, whose urban cosmopolitan lifestyle exists in perfect harmony with
nature. Surrounded by the sea and its own exotic archipelago, Helsinki offers
visitors an endless number of possibilities.
Throughout its 450-year history, Helsinki has existed in the crosscurrents of the East and West. The colorful layers of history can be seen everywhere. The sea and islands are important components of the city centre's expression. All in all, there are 315 islands off the 98-km shoreline.
The National Opera will wonderfully intrigue friends of the opera and ballet.
Classical music can in turn be digested at the Finlandia Hall and the House
of Culture. All three buildings are also classics of Finnish architecture.
