Helsinki, a modern Scandinavian city along the side of the Baltic Bays, and the capital city of Finland is one of those cities you don't hear people rave about a lot. Due to its forward-thinking and head-on modernization, people visiting Europe expecting to experience European medieval roots may be disappointed when they arrive in Helsinki but if you brush that expectation aside and come to Helsinki with no expectation, you are in for quite a quirky amazing time.
