One of the finest Harbor cities in Scandinavia, Helsinki is the Capital of Finland and the biggest city in the country, with almost 600 000 inhabitants. The countless number of islands toward its coast diversifies the city’s urban pattern: a few examples? The isles of Suomenlinna, the Fortress Island, and Seurasaari and its open-air museum. It can be surprising how harsh winter and extreme day-night cycles do not affect the daily rhythm of the city: no matter what, people in Helsinki always keep going! Even if it’s advisable to learn the local language when moving to another country, in Helsinki all the services are offered in English, Finnish and Swedish: none is left behind. Let’s say that if you really love challenges, this language with 15 declinations could be the one for you! In addition to the most common Holidays, in Finland, you find the 6th December as the Independence Day, Vappu the 1st of May, and of course the Midsummer Day the 24th of June.
