The Monocle Travel Guide Series: 35 Helsinki



Monocle's Travel Guides go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure you get the best out of a city—no matter how short your stay. Designed to be compact and collectable, they are also discerning; Monocle's team won't list a hundred places to eat but they will tell you where's best for everything from some tasty fast food to something truly celebratory.

Helsinki is a tale of two cities. Mid-winter it’s a frosty wonderland of snow-caked streets, the residents holed up in cosy, impeccably designed cafés. Come summer, the sun refuses to set and you’ll catch locals partying merrily into the early hours and leaping gleefully into the Baltic Sea. Whatever the season, Helsinki’s streets, forests and islands are ripe for exploring, so join us for a tour of this confident and cultured city.
