Summer atmosfere, history and presence


Sea, islands and parks, three factors that represents Helsinki. Culture, architecture and a rich history between East and West, that reflects the other side of this vibrant trendy seaside capital.

Helsinki is a place to visit all around the year. The air is fresh, we do not have any heavy industry in the center and Helsinki is known for its several green parks.

We just celebrated our 100th anniversary of independence from Russia and you will hear about our rocky road towards independence and how Finland evolved from a rural country to one of the world's top welfare states.
Besides that I want to tell you about our daily life, high education, free healthcare and introduce you to our traditions and habits.

Let me introduce this beautiful city for you and your party.
