Visiting from Adelaide to Helsinki

Helsinki travel information        

Helsinki is the capital of Finland, its a stylish city and home to a mix of Scandinavian and Russian culture. Looking across the Gulf of Finland towards Estonia, the Finnish capital has always been a sea town and the harbour is its focus. Most of the top attractions are found by the water, and the UNESO Suomenlinna sea fortress is a must visit. Dine at one of the many seafood restaurants with perch, salmon and crayfish all served with potatoes. During summer, enjoy fishing, golf and spend time hiking in the nearby Nuuksio National Park. In winter try ice skating, skiing, visit the National Museum of Finland and the Design Museum or take a trip to the theatre. Having hosted the Summer Olympics, the city has strong sporting teams.
