Tourist Info

Helsinki is very interesting geographically as just across the bay are a number of small islands that are also part of the capital city. At its centre is the southern part of Finland with the islands varying in size and use, from being the location of an inhabited fortress to the home of Finland’s largest zoo. During the summer months the city enjoys 18 hours of daylight and during the winter the days are extremely short. On one of the islands, Suomenlinna, is a fortress and this can be reached by boat with a sailing time of only 15 minutes. The island is a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are also market stalls to visit and buy from as well as a museum to wander around.

The Helsinki Senate Square, where many of the top tourist events are held, was designed by Carl Ludvig Eagel and consists of the Palace of the Council of State, the University building and the Helsinki cathedral. There is also a statue dedicated to Emperor Alexander-II which is a symbol of Finland's past relationship with imperial Russia.
