Helsinki Overview

Helsinki is the capital and the largest city of Finland. It was established in 1550 by King Gustav I of Sweden as the town of Helsingfors. Helsinki has more then 600 000 inhabitants and it´s located in southern Finland, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland and the Baltic Sea, sometimes it´s being called the „Daughter of the Baltic.“ The city is spread across a number of bays and peninsulas and over about 315 islands. Major islands in Helsinki include Seurasaari, Vallisaari, Lauttasaari, Korekeasaari and Suomenlinna. Helsinki alongside its neighbouring municipalities of Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen form the Helsinki metropolitan area.
