Helsinki travel

The city of Helsinki is a quaint urban city known for its historic culture, outstanding dining options and modern designs. It was founded in 1550 by the Swedish King Gustav I for sea trade. The construction of the Suomenlinna Maritime Fortress was instrumental in the substantial growth and wealth of the city. Under the Russian invasion of 1809, Helsinki was made the capital of Finland and after its independence, an elaborate plan to build the city began. Nowadays, Helsinki's economy is powered by the business and services sector. Its central location not only attracts travellers on flights to Helsinki for business purposes, but also holidaymakers on a weekend or city break. Check out our offers flight + hotel to Helsinki!
