This compact city, built around a fine harbour, has a mixture of styles reflecting earlier Russian and Swedish domination, but also the rise of Finnish nationalism. The Finns are fun-loving people who enjoy summer festivals when the city has a youthful buzz. Why not combine a visit to Helsinki with other Baltic capitals? Tallinn is only 18 minutes by helicopter or 90 minutes away by fast ferry, while an express train to St.Petersburg takes six hours.
