"Visit the island called..." Helsinki Favorite Tip by katlau

Helsinki General: 193 reviews and 193 photos


Favorite thing: Visit the island called Suomenlinna where you can find an old castle that can tell you a lot of the history of Helsinki and Finland, and enjoy the nature. The big ferries to Sweden pass by Suomenlinna.
Take a walk in Seurasaari, a forrest in the city - remember to bring nuts, because there´s a lot of friendly squirrels and birds there.
If you like art and museums, visit Kiasma for contemporary art and Ateneum that has a great collection of Finnish art.
Enjoy a cup of Finnish coffee in Kauppatori where you can meet some nice people and maybe learn couple of words of the local language.
