Flights to Helsinki with Finnair

Enjoy world-class culture and lively nightlife in Finland’s capital

Helsinki is a lively city of culture and design surrounded by pure nature. The white steeple of Helsinki Cathedral against the blue sky welcomes visitors to Senate Square, where locals gather to celebrate the New Year, Finnish Independence Day (6 December) and to soak up the sun on the steps of the cathedral. The adjacent Market Square is where boats depart for city tours, the island fortress of Suomenlinna and the Korkeasaari Zoo. Here you'll also enjoy tempting aromas of traditional delicacies such as rainbow trout cooked on an open fire and sautéed reindeer sauce.

The Ateneum Art Museum features classics of Finnish art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma is worth seeing simply due to its unique architecture. Be sure to also check out the many cultural events held in the city, such as the Helsinki Festival of culture in August. During the Night of the Arts at the end of August, stores, museums and galleries are open until late at night and the city is packed with free cultural events.

You'll find great souvenirs in the small boutiques of the Helsinki Design District, the Hietalahti summer flea market and Stockmann's department store. Art Nouveau architecture at its most beautiful can be admired in the Ullanlinna and Katajanokka districts of the city. The trendy Punavuori and Kallio areas, popular among students, are known for their restaurants and nightlife.
