Finland’s largest and capital city, Helsinki is stylish and charming with cultural influences from Sweden and Russia. Here you can breathe in the fresh sea air, watch the world go by at a park (one third of the city consists of parks) or have a go at skating, skiing or snowboarding in the winter, and cycling, lake cruises or island hopping in the summer. When you stay at one of our Helsinki hostels you’ll find it easy to get around the city, with buses, a metro and trams available to take you to some top tourist sights. Visit Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located off the coast of Helsinki, get some superb city views from Panorama Tower at Linnanmäki Amusement Park, and in the summer catch the weekly Guard Parades. And if you get the chance, take a boat tour of the unique archipelago of more than 300 islands.
