      • Helsinki
        Surrounded by freezing waters spattered with picturesque islands and islets, Finnish capital Helsinki is an ever more fashionable European destination. Wonder the sparkling streets and you’ll find plenty of vibrant modernism in the form of art noveau architecture and spacious cafes alongside tiny corners of carefully preserved Finnish heritage that can’t have changed in centuries.

        Especially during the icy winters, Helsinki can be glacially cold, but during the summer its lively and welcoming, and begs you to explore exciting spots like the tightly packed islands of Suomenlinna, where you can picnic amongst the soaring ferns, and the happy natives still gather every evening to wave as the ferries glide through the narrow straight between the islands. Another essential offshore experience is eating at the unforgettably romantic island restaurants, towering amongst the rocks and serving magnificent locally caught seafood.

        If you prefer something a bit more lively you should head for the city beer terraces which are more sophisticated than their German equivalent, and overwhelmingly dreamy amongst the outdoor heaters when the snow is falling all around you. Follow it up, if you can, with an atmospheric concert at Temppeliaukio, an underground church cut from the rock, and now a highly atmospheric auditorium.

        Board the old steam train from Helsinki to the old trading town of Porvoo for a taste of the Finland of old and, in fact, Finland in general, which is largely very different to its capital, and you’ll find cobbled streets, wooden houses, roman influences and one of the country’s most spectacular village settings.

        Back in the capital, you can tour the pubs by tram, check out the zoo or the sea life centre, or entertain the kids in the hectic water park. Come during Winter, and Helsinki will have you drifting around a seemingly deserted city of frosted streets, with plenty of hidden corners of warmth to track down amongst it all. Come in summer, though, and you’re in for a treat which is Helsinki’s warm, modern, and home to plenty of exciting outdoor draws and an intriguing downtown.

      • Helsinki Airport

        A lot seems to depend on the flight schedules and times of year. Some commentators cite busy overcrowded gates, others empty spaces. The price of things at the airport, and it should be understood in Finland generally (should you be stopping-over and not in transit) are high in comparison to other places, including those elsewhere (outside Scandinavia) in the Eurozone.

        There are new terminal gates and associated shopping areas being finalised at this time (late 2016), but there are also plans for another phase of expansion as Finnair purchases a fleet of new A350s for the far eastern routes Helsinki is well placed to feeder to other European cities.

        The airport is impeccably clean and staff proudly courteous; there are good connections to the city and elsewhere in Finland. There is a new train to the city centre.

        • Helsinki cathedral, university main building and a few other old buildings making senate square the very centre of attraction of old Helsinki. By a less than 10 min walk you reach the harbor and hustle and bustle of daily market.
        • This is a beautiful place on a sunny day, whether it be winter and covered in snow or summer and covered in tourists. Lots of nearby attractions - eg the cathedral, House Museum, ferry to Suomenlinna (Island fortress) - make it a good starting point for a visit.
        • The Senate square is beautiful. Monumental staircase and the cathedral is beautiful seen from the outside. The inside is empty, nothing to see...
        • It's a beautiful square. Next to the main cathedral and University building. This is where many events take place and always worth a visit in Helsinki
        • It is a nice place to visit in Helsinki or let's say it is a symbol of Helsinki. I wasn't impress by it's interior design, but it still worth to stop and visit as the entrance is free.

        • Symbol of Helsinki - Senate Square
          From point of view of local I probably see Senate Square differently than tourists. However after visiting it recently after a long time I totally remembered why it is one of my favorite spots in Helsinki. There is always people. Yes, most of them are tourists but what would be funnier than watching group of foreigners taking photos of this white Helsinki Cathedral. Do they even know that it is not “senate building” but cathedral?

          There is really nothing else to do in Senate Square except taking photos. However, it is in one of the best spots of Helsinki. One of the corner buildings is Helsinki City Museum. If you walk the roads towards bay and market (that are only like 200 meters away), you will find several local shops full of Finnish design and hand-made products. In addition to these things if you are lucky you may encounter some crazy Finns.

          Most of my visits to Senate Square have been because of something crazy. Helsinki Cathedral’s long and wide steps are like made for flash mobs, protests and other crazy things. Also many bachelor and bachelorette parties come here to take some cool photos and have fun. So wish you are lucky and maybe you can see something unique. There is no way of telling when there will happen something so I just recommend going to Senate Square for the normal tourist photos.
