Helsinki - a lively MARITIME city

A taste of culture and the scent of the sea

The symbol of Helsinki is the brilliant white cathedral known in Finnish as Tuomiokirkko that towers above Senate Square. Helsinki offers architectural jewels, international top design, hot fashion names and grand outdoor events and festivals in the heart of the city. Within the past few years Helsinki has emerged as an internationally significant trendsetter, while still retaining its soft nature typical of a small town.
