Finland Sightseeing

Finland Sightseeing

Finland is a fun, fascinating, sadly overlooked corner of Europe. Its small population fills a sprawling, rocky, forested land that shares a long border with Russia. The Finns often have been overshadowed by their powerful neighbors, the Swedes and the Russians. And yet, they’ve persevered magnificently, with good humor, a zest for architecture and design, a deep love of saunas, and an understandable pride in things that are uniquely Finnish.

Helsinki Despite its somewhat severe cityscape and chilly northern latitude, Helsinki bursts with vibrant street life and a joyful creative spirit that pleases locals and tickles tourists. Lacking a cutely cobblestoned “Old Town,” its center is instead a spruce-and-stone wonderland of stunning 19th- to 21st-century architecture. On sunny summer days — when the sky is still bright after midnight — gusting winds swirl seagulls against an azure sky scattered with cotton-ball clouds, musicians and dancers enliven the Esplanade, and coffee sippers spill out onto sidewalks. Enjoy the city’s bustling harborfront market, lively main boulevard, fine museums, scintillating design culture, dueling cathedrals, and quirky east-meets-west melange of cultures.
