Helsinki is the capital and largest city of Finland and also its main port.

The city is closely linked with the cities of Vantaa, Espoo and Kauniainen and with eight other cities so-called Greater Helsinki.

Helsinki have been part of the Swedish kingdom for a long time and later it became the autonomous area under the administration of Russia. During this time new churches, temples and houses were built, so local architecture offers more than you would expect and than you'll see in most Finnish cities.
