Discover the delightful lakeside town Savonlinna, explore its northernmost medieval fortress and stay at a charming, small hotel by breathtaking Lake Saimaa
Much of Finland remains an understated, rural idyll – the perfect setting for soul searchers. It is a treasure chest of villages, churches and castles; rivers, lakes and forests. Helsinki, on the other hand, is a lively capital city offering visitors a wealth of culture to explore.
Finland, like its Scandinavian sisters, is passionate about design. Some of the world’s most imitated and admired designers and architects come from Finland. You’ll find creative, considered design at every turn in this stylish, simple country. And the capital is no exception. Helsinki is a cutting-edge urban space, home to Neo-classical architecture, best enjoyed in the cathedral area. You’ll also discover a treasure trove of Art Nouveau buildings, quirky bars and sophistication – it’s everything you imagine this enigmatic country’s capital to be. Other points of interest include Senate Square, the Presidential Palace, the Parliament and the church on the rock.
As well as the mainland, there are many islands to discover, particularly at the entrance to Helsinki’s harbour. The old, wooden painted town of Porvoo is a delightful destination where you’ll have the chance to wander time-worn cobbled streets and take in the charming cathedral.
