Finland’s southern capital, Helsinki is the most populous city in the country. Located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, it serves as Finland’s cultural and political hub, home to over 1.2 million people.
Helsinki is notorious for ranking among the best in the world for urban living. Time Magazine ranked it as one of the greatest places in the world and it’s renowned for its tourism and environmentalism.
Visitors to the city can revel in a range of urban, cultural, and historical activities. Its biggest historical museum — the National Museum of Finland — is a tourist attraction unto itself, housed in a romantic-style, neomedieval castle. In fact, romanticism played a big part in the formation of the city with many buildings across its varied cityscape sporting the style.
Helsinki is divided into three major areas: Helsinki downtown, north Helsinki, and east Helsinki. Each has a thriving cultural life and a range of attractions to wow visitors from every walk of life.
Helsinki Airport is the major international gateway to Helsinki and represents the largest airport in Finland. Operated by Finavia, it’s located in Vantaa and services both international and domestic flights.
There are six motorways starting radially from Helsinki giving you plenty of options for entering the city via car.
Finland is a dream to travel via train. The Finnish railway is well-developed and comprised of over 3 thousand kilometers of rail tracks that connect both the cities and the smaller villages. Getting to Helsinki by train is as easy as booking a ticket on the local rail.
Suomenlinna: A short ferry ride from Kauppatori sits one of the most impressive, man-made places in Scandinavia. Spread across seven islands, Suomenlinna is a giant maritime fortress constructed by the Swedes in the mid-1800s.
Helsinki Cathedral: This landmark soars above the Helsinki cityscape, shining like a beacon from the water. Whatever your reason for visiting the city, this neoclassical cathedral is not to be missed.
Linnanmäki: Over a million visitors a year descend on Linnanmäki to experience the soaring heights of the roller coasters, the fun of their amusement arcades, and the exquisite terror of their thrill rides. If you’re visiting Helsinki with the kids, this amusement park is a must.
There is parking in the city proper but it’s notoriously busy throughout the year.
Parking in the inner city is usually subject to a fee
Park and ride is a great way to avoid the city’s traffic congestion. Simply park your RV near a train station and take the short trip into the city proper.
