Helsinki Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Helsinki might lack the same historical grandeur as other Nordic capitals like Copenhagen or Stockholm, but it has plenty of other aces up its sleeve. Often named both one of the most innovative and the most livable cities on the planet, it has no shortage of interesting museums, entertainment, and landmarks. These are three of the most interesting attractions of Helsinki:

  • Ateneum. The most notable of the cultural institutions that make up the Finnish National Gallery, Ateneum is also the largest art museum in Finland. Located in a 19th-century building that boasts a truly stunning facade, the museum hosts classical works of most famous Finnish artists, as well as renowned foreign masters like Munch, Cezanne, and Van Gogh.
  • Löyly. No visit to the Finnish capital is complete without experiencing a traditional Finnish sauna, and while there are almost countless opportunities for that — even most residential buildings have one — the Löyly public sauna is probably the most glamorous one. Combining a conventional sauna look with modern design influences and located right on the Baltic coast, it has been mentioned in foreign media like CNN, Vogue, and Time.

  • National parks. There are plenty of parks and urban forests in Helsinki, but if that doesn’t feel wild enough for you, the Uusimaa region, of which Helsinki is a part, is home to three national parks. Ekenäs Archipelago can only be reached by boat (although visiting it is still a very worthwhile experience), but Nuuksio and Sipoonkorpi are both only about a 40-minute drive away (to the northwest and northeast, respectively). Both these parks are characterized by thick forests, walking trails, and local wildlife like European nightjars, flying squirrels, and, in the case of Nuuksio, even reindeer.
