Urban & Natural Helsinki

Admire Helsinki’s maritime silhouette, which is a part of the national landscape of Finland. In Helsinki, the sea is an essential part of everyday life. The sea surrounds the city on three sides. Helsinki has almost 100 kilometres of shoreline, around 300 islands and many interesting maritime attractions. One third of Helsinki consists of parks and other green areas, which ensures the city’s fresh air. Helsinki’s nature offers a wide range of activities. Remember to see Helsinki also on foot!
