However, during the winter you will experience short, dark days and rather chilly temperatures, with an even cooler wind chill. There are numerous tours in and around the city, along with boat cruises. A must-see in Helsinki is Suomenlinna, which was once considered to be the greatest sea fortress in the Baltics. Helsinki is known for fresh cuisine, and depending on the season you can eat fresh fish, berries, mushrooms, and vegetables. Each year Helsinki also hosts up to 3,000 events, making this an ideal destination to visit.
