Helsinki: the Daughter of the Baltic Sea
Interwoven with the Baltic Sea, coves and islands, the vibrant archipelago of Helsinki overflows with spectacular architecture, cutting-edge design, and an array of drinking and dining options.
The Finnish capital is packed with plenty of things to do, see, and explore; the city has an incredibly diverse selection of museums, lovely cafes and bars, green spaces, open-air art installations – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
If you’re drawn to art, Helsinki is just the place for you! The city perfectly blends art and nature shown in its outdoor museum, Seurasaari. The museum displays several Eastern and Western-influenced exhibits dating back from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Take a trip down to the fortress of Suomenlinna, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Finland’s most popular attractions. The islands of Suomenlinna are also conveniently located a mere 15-minute ferry ride away from the famed Market Square.
Helsinki has long been accepted as a city of exceptional design. The Design District, a trendy neighborhood loaded with quirky designer shops, museums, art galleries and several great restaurants, is a true testament to that. There, you can also find the Chapel of Silence – another landmark worth a visit.

Lake Bodom, near Espoo, is the backdrop for the Master golf complex which houses two 18-hole layouts; The Master, a beautiful parkland championship layout and the slightly shorter Forest, a picturesque woodland course.
