One of the world's northernmost capitals, Helsinki is a hotbed for Scandinavian design, museums, and cafés. Just 456 km from St. Petersburg, the city is also where east meets west. Mixed in with Art Noveau architecture, Russian-built neoclassical churches remind visitors that Helsinki was once ruled by Czar Alexander I.
Today, visitors flock to Helsinki for the beautiful, harbor-side location and the eclectic mix of old churches, modern museums, and pleasant parks.
