MAIN ATTRACTIONS IN HELSINKI

The fortress of Finland

In just 15 minutes you can take the ferry to Suomenlinna, an 18th-century fortress, originally built by the Swedes, which stretches over several islands that are connected by bridges.

Part of the Unesco World Heritage, it awaits you with several museums, bunkers and fortified constructions, but also with a submarine used by the Finnish army in the Second World War, as well as with picnic places and pleasant landscapes.

Remarkable buildings

You can visit the city starting from the center, visiting Kiasma, a symbol of the city, which houses works of contemporary and digital art.

It continues with the Uspenskin Katedraali, an Orthodox cathedral built in 1868, and the Athenaeum, a beautiful neo-renaissance-style building, today the country's most important art gallery. Stop by the Museum of Design and the Kansallimuseo, the National Museum of History, which operates in a beautiful monumental building, a basic piece of national-romantic Art Nouveau architecture.

Nordic goodies

Finnish cuisine is characterized by simple dishes, but based on the freshest and healthiest ingredients. Blini are a very appetizing snack, consisting of small pancakes filled with onions, mayonnaise, pickles and shrimp. At lunch you can eat a pea soup with rye bread, followed by Grillimakkara, fried sausages served with mustard and beer.

Ask the waiter for a portion of Kaalikääryleet, prepared almost identical to cabbage rolls (Romanian sarmale). For dessert, Finns eat Runeberg Torte, a cake with rum, cream and jam, or cranberry pie. Like their Russian neighbors, the Finns love vodka, with the famous Finland being made here.
