- Finland’s capital Helsinki is one of the most pleasant ones; it is surrounded by sea and green forests, its public transportation is efficient and convenient, it is pedestrian-friendly and cultural activities are abundant. The archipelago along Finland’s southern coast is magnificent. Some islands are no more than a rock and a bush, others are thickly forested. Channels and coves run in all directions.
- Helsinki is home to more than one million people – approximately one-fifth of the Finnish population. Helsinki is also home to many of the key players of Finnish society, ranging from arts and sciences to the state government and some of the largest Finnish corporations.
- Helsinki is known for its Safe, Smooth and high Quality conferences and meetings. Try us!
