The best things to do in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, are heavily influenced by the city's proximity to St. Petersburg—you’re likely to notice the eastern influence (and the chilly weather) right upon arrival. A little bit Scandi, a little bit Russian, this city straddles the east and west with super-cool laid-back vibes and is a hipster haven in itself, from student-friendly Kallio to the endless nature walks and opportunities just sit back with a beer and enjoy a traditional Finnish sauna.
