One of the world's northernmost capitals, Helsinki is an exciting city with visible intersections amongst minimal Scandinavian design, art museums, and cozy cafés. Just 456 km from St. Petersburg, the city is also where east meets west. Mixed in with Art Noveau architecture, Russian-built neoclassical churches remind visitors that Helsinki was once ruled by Czar Alexander I. Today, visitors flock to Helsinki for the beautiful, harbor-side location and the eclectic mix of old churches, modern museums, and pleasant parks. (Not to mention the Finnish saunas!)
Helsinki was also chosen as World Design Capital for the year 2012. In 2014 Helsinki was awarded City of Design status as part of the Creative Cities Network established by UNESCO.
