Like all of Finland, Helsinki has a dual nature, and both sides of the city - and its country - hold great appeal for travellers. Helsinki is an elegant Scandinavian city, both stylish and chic, but the city does not try to hide its other side - the quirky side that's full of a quaint, quiet charm. In fact, Helsinki dares to be different, different from other capital cities, and different from the rest of its own country.
Located on the picturesque southern Finnish coast, Helsinki is Finland's capital and largest city. A seaside city washed by the chilly Gulf of Finland, Helsinki's harbour is its focal point, but the city also features Art Nouveau buildings, elegant cafes and dozens of museums preserving Finland's cultural heritage. What's so quirky about that, you might ask. Well, some of Helsinki's favourite restaurants have not changed their menus - or their furnishings - since the 1930s.

Helsinki's neo-classical Senate Square is the city's cultural centre, featuring a statue of Russia's Tsar Alexander II along with an array of art exhibits, festivals, concerts and snow sculptures. The impressive Government Palace, National Library and Helsinki Cathedral are on its perimeter, and colourful Market Square, with its rows of tents and stalls where vendors sell fur clothing, jewellery, artwork and fresh produce amidst a festive atmosphere, is only a few steps away. Within a short walk is Aleksanterinkatu, Helsinki's main commercial street, lined with shops, cafes and restaurants. Suomenlinna, the sea fortress only a short ferry ride away from Market Square, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular day trip with walking tours, museums, handicraft shops and a variety of cafes and restaurants.
Sibelius Park features a unique monument shaped like organ pipes, erected in honour of famed composer Jean Sibelius, while the offbeat Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, housed in a curvy, quirky building, exhibits Finnish and international modern art. Temppeliaukio Church, built into solid rock, is a unique place where natural light from a glazed dome illuminates rough stone interiors; because of the quality of the acoustics, the church doubles as a concert venue.
