Location: Helsinki, Finland; located in Southern Finland
Helsinki is the capital and largest city in Finland with a population of 629,512. Helsinki is Finland's major political, educational, financial, cultural, and research center as well as one of northern Europe's major cities.
The design scene here is one of the most electrifying in the world today, with boutiques, workshops and galleries proliferating in the Design District, Helsinki's thoroughfares and intriguing backstreets. The city's foodie scene is also flourishing, with hip eateries offering locally sourced tasting menus, craft-beer bars, coffee roasteries and microdistilleries popping up at dizzying speed.
Nevertheless, Helsinki's older icons endure. Its understated, yet glorious art-nouveau buildings, centenarian cafes, museums preserving Finnish heritage, and restaurants that have changed neither menu nor furnishings since the 1930s remain an intrinsic part of the city’s quirky charm.
