Helsinki

Helsinki with its suburbs Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen form a million city where there is a lot to do, see and experience. The city is well known for its entertainment, design, architecture and high tech solutions – you’ll always find something interesting to do.

Why not walk along the historical quarters in the Senate Square area and enjoy the superb urban atmosphere and architecture of Helsinki City? Or go shopping in the design quarter, have a picnic in the Esplanade Park or jump on a boat and sail to the sea fortification in Suomenlinna. Sea is an essential part of Helsinki.

The list of things to do or see in Helsinki is rather long: visit the one of a kind Temppeliaukio Church, Sibelius Monument or the open air museum in Seurasaari. If you travel with children you will enjoy Superpark, Tropicario or the amusement park Linnanmäki. Visit to a proper sauna in Sea Pool Allas or in Löyly with your Nordic friends offers you an authentic and unique Helsinki experience. We recommend staying in beautiful Helsinki for longer than one day. For that purpose Eckerö Line hotel package in Radisson SeaSide Blu hotel is a perfect choice.
