Daughter of the Baltic
Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights. The city is strongly influenced by its geography, and understandably so. Not only is it located on a peninsula, but it spans over 300 islands. Its close proximity to both eastern and western major cities has also played a strong part in the capital's history, cityscape, and culture. Much of the activity here centers around the Baltic Sea, with tourists and locals alike enjoying boat trips, fishing, and simply watching the activity of the bustling harbor. In addition to its relationship with the water, Helsinki is famed for its architectural offerings, which include fine examples of Modernism, Functionalism, and Art Nouveau. Helsinki is in Uusimaa.
