Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Helsinki, Finland area.
Including 315 islands near its Baltic shoreline while stretching out over more than 400 square miles, Helsinki streets wind around bays, with bridges, ferries, and water taxis connecting dots of land offshore. Attractions include Uspenski Cathedral (built in 1868 and western Europe’s largest orthodox church), the Finnish National Gallery (a complex with the Ateneum, Kiasma and Synebrychoff museums), and Old Market Hall (piled high with fresh caught fish and other taste treats). Other attractions include Linnanmaki Amusement Park (opened in 1950), Korkeasaari Zoo (founded in 1889), and Senate Square (with surrounding buildings forming a cohesive example of Neo-Classicism). Helsinki’s historic core actually extends from Senate Square, centered by the Lutheran Cathedral, to the tree-shaded Esplanadi, where embassies and elegant residences line the south end toward Kaivopuisto Park. To the north of city center lies the more residential Mannerheimintie, with top restaurants between Sibelius Park and Lake Töölönlahti. The Kruununhaka district was founded in 1550 at the Vantaa River mouth, but relocated in 1640 on the Vironniemi peninsula in what now reigns as Kruununhaka. Tourist strongholds include Suomenlinna -- The "Fortress of Finland," also called "Gibraltar of the North" -- covering five main islands, all linked, with museums and fortifications. The isle of Seurasaari has a beach, national park, and Finland’s largest open-air museum.
