A combination of islands and peninsulas, Helsinki is the capital of and largest city in Finland. If you fly with Austrian Airlines to Helsinki in the summer, you can experience lovely weather with highs of around 25 degrees and only a few hours of darkness each evening. 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.
