Helsinki, the Finnish capital and Scandinavian design capital, stands by the shores of the Gulf of Finland. This arctic city showcases magnificent architecture and urban design. Byzantine, neoclassical, and medieval Russian influences make for a unique cityscape. Helsinki is also a haven for contemporary design, found in the Musiikkitalo concert hall, the Kiasma museum of contemporary art, and the magnificent rock-carved church of the Temppeliaukio. A trip to Helsinki is incomplete without visiting its Design District, which is home to the Design Museum. If you’re a fan of avant-garde Finnish design, you’ll be thrilled with the creative glassware, textiles, and home fashion that spill out from the many stylish boutiques and galleries. With its arctic islands, sea beaches, parks, and public gardens, Helsinki also offers wonderful natural vistas. Ferry rides from the old Market Square to Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage site with walking trails, make for a delightful getaway for nature lovers. Adventure seekers flock to the city for hiking trips to the surrounding alpine forests and for winter sports like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and ice skating. When in town, feast on traditional Finnish flavors like grilled salmon and arctic char cooked with wild mushrooms and fresh cloudberries or lingonberries. What’s not to love?
