With its beautiful coastline and many islands reached by a crowd of ferries in the harbour, Helsinki is a waterborne city settled on a peninsula at the southern tip of Finland along the Gulf of Finland and so connected to the Baltic Sea. Founded in 1550 by King Gustav Vasa with the vision of making Finland a competitive port power in the Baltic, Helsinki later became the official capital of the Grand Duchy of Finland under the leadership of Imperial Russia. Thanks to the strong directing hand of Carl Ludvig Engel, the German architect, neoclassical architecture can be found throughout the city, adding to the very cosmopolitan charm of this Scandinavian capital. With a population of over half a million in the centre, the capital is by far the largest city in Finland. Your airBaltic flight arrives at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, which has been awarded for its low delay time and is the central hub for Finland’s airline operators.
Hyvää huomenta! (Good morning!) The main language of Helsinki is of course Finnish, which most of the population in the city speaks. Most signs are written in Finnish, so tourists should become at least a little familiar with the basics of the language. Swedish is a small second language in the city, and the multi-national heritage of the city means you never know what you’ll hear in the street. Tourist areas and some restaurants will provide service in English as well, so a trip to Helsinki does not exactly require a course in Finnish.
