A city of Northern Lights

Many refer to Helsinki as a “miniature version of St Petersburg.” Although the Russian influence is dominant, Helsinki was shaped by influences from both the East and West. This is a young city, nestled in an archipelago of hundreds of tiny islands that create a heavenly environment for cruises. Helsinki is a laid-back city, ideal for tranquil holidays, and romantic encounters under the splendid Northern Lights (visible during cold winters).
