Finland - Helsinki (Chapter)
This is the Helsinki chapter from Lonely Planet’s Finland guidebook.
Though Helsinki can seem a younger sibling to other Scandinavian capitals, it’s the one that went to art school, scorns pop music and works in a cutting-edge studio. Nevertheless, much of what is lovable in Helsinki is older: its understated yet glorious old buildings are all part of the city’s quirky charm.
