Finland - Helsinki (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

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.

  • descending into the weekend maelstrom of Helsinki’s excellent variety of pubs and bars
  • maps
  • exploring the fortress island of Suomenlinna that guarded Helsinki harbour
  • transport
  • browsing the design district of Punavuori
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: History, Sights, Activities, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Around Helsinki, Espoo and Tu-usulan Rantatie.
