Helsinki is known for its architecture, its laid-back lifestyle, its public saunas, its outstanding cuisine and its incredible waterways and views.

Finland is home to both the northern lights and to the legendary character Santa Claus. Hotels in Helsinki Finland are some of the best in all of Scandinavia. Before we get to hotels in Helsinki Finland, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Helsinki, Finland’s capital city, has a population of around 655,000 people. Tavastians, who used the area for fishing and hunting, occupied present-day Helsinki during the Iron Age. In 1550, King Gustav I of Sweden established the area as a trading town. In 1710, a plague killed most of its inhabitants. Russia, in 1809, defeated Sweden in the Finnish War, and thereafter the town began to develop into a more significant city, with Russian Emperor Alexander I moving the Finnish capital from Turku to Helsinki in 1812. The 1952 Olympic Games were held in the city, which aided development, though it wasn’t until the 1970s that Helsinki became truly urbanized.
The third-largest Nordic municipality, Helsinki is located near the Gulf of Finland. One of the world’s most livable cities, it has a humid continental climate, with high temperatures ranging from 70 degrees Fahrenheit in July to just below freezing in February. A major Nordic city, Helsinki is home to many fine museums, theaters, restaurants and venues. Major points of interest are Helsinki Cathedral, Kiasma, Aurinkolahti, Suomenlinna, Eläintarhanlahti, University of Helsinki, National Museum of Finland, Helsinki City Museum, Finnish National Gallery, Finnish National Theatre, Helsinki Music Centre, Senate Square and Helsinki Olympic Stadium. Finland’s national beverage is milk, while the most well-known alcoholic drinks are lakka, a liquor derived from cloudberry fruit, and mesimarja, which comes from brambleberries. Popular foods include rye bread, cheese, rice pies, salmon, cinnamon buns and seafood. Now that we have some background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Helsinki Finland that are sure to help make for an outstanding experience.
