Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Helsinki, Finland!
Covering more than 400 square miles, including 315 islands near Baltic shoreline, Helsinki -- capital of Finland -- was founded on the Vantaa River and later moved to the southern peninsula where deeper waters provide superior advantage for Baltic Sea trade. Helsinki's parks and open public spaces take up nearly a third of its metro core, although most city attractions are clustered on a single peninsula. Helsinki streets wind around bays and bridges span islands, while water taxis and ferries connect dots of land farther offshore. Helsinki was founded in 1550 by Finns settling in upon orders from Swedish King Gustav Vasa. For the next three centuries, Turku was Finland's capital, with Helsinki grabbing limelight only when Sweden ceded Finland to Russia in 1809. Tsar Alexander I, in 1812, made Finland an autonomous grand duchy, with Helsinki as capital. Just prior to the tsar's proclamation, many of Helsinki's traditional wood buildings went up in smoke, leading to city core redevelopment. Architect Carl Ludvig Engel took on the project, providing notable neoclassical architecture, which combined with Helsinki's Art Nouveau touches of the early 20th century and more modern buildings, creates an overall visual feast. Attractions include the Finnish National Gallery, a complex with the Ateneum, Kiasma and Synebrychoff museums, and Old Market Hall, where permanent vendor stalls are piled with fish roe and assorted other delicacies. Helsinki's historic core extends from Senate Square, centered by the Lutheran Cathedral, to the tree-shaded Esplanadi, where embassies and elegant homes line the prosperous south end leading up to Kaivopuisto Park. North of city center lies Mannerheimintie, with a more residential mood and excellent restaurants between Sibelius Park in the west and Lake Töölönlahti to the east. The Kruununhaka district was founded in 1550 at the Vantaa River mouth, but relocated in 1640 on the Vironniemi peninsula in what now reigns as Kruununhaka. Islands of Helsinki embrace several tourist strongholds, including Korkeasaari, boasting the Helsinki Zoo. Suomenlinna -- The "Fortress of Finland," also called "Gibraltar of the North" -- covers five main islands, all linked, with assorted museums and fortifications. Seurasaari, another island, has a beach, national park, and Finland's largest open-air museum. Helsinki accommodations include more than 45 hotels, most in the city center, with a buffet breakfast and use of a sauna typically included in the price of the room.
