Suomenlinna Fortress - translated Finnish castle - was built in the 18th century literally on the porch of Helsinki, at that time not very important port city under the rule of the Swedes. It was the construction of this fortress that brought the city an influx of new inhabitants and a rapid development of infrastructure. It can therefore be said with certainty that without Suomenilnna, Helsinki would probably look completely different today.
Glittering snowflakes all around, tenacious dogs, sweet-smelling cinnamon, a herd of raindeer, and long anticipated aurela borealise…
The port city of Turku is situated about 2 hours of car ride west from Helsinki. You can take direct bus at Helsinki airport terminal or you can transfer to a small plane on intra-country flight Helsinki-Turku. The city is surrounded by diverse coastline of the Baltic Sea. The River Aura also flows into the sea. Turku was founded in the end of the 13th century. However, people lived in the area as early is in the Stone Age. Soon after the city was founded, Turku cathedral (Turun tuomiokirkko) was consecrated. The cathedral is situated in the center of the city and you can access it easily by public transportation. It is one of the most popular places there.
Today we visit the capital of Helsinki in the country also called Suomi. Despite the city is well-known and sought by tourists, don’t expect crowded streets. As the country in which it is situated, the city is calm and quite quiet.
Today we take you to a small harbor town on the coast of Osthrobotnie. The city of Kokkola situated between Oula and Vaasa is not something that we would recommend you for an individual trip, however, if you pass by, you should stop there and see what they have.
Right after we traveled through the capitals of the Baltics, we moved by ship to Finland where we paid a visit to beautiful yet bit expensive Helsinki. Still, it would be a mistake to pass it for there is lots to see.

Finnish national parks are considered among the most beautifulin the world. There are thousands of lakes in the southwest of the country and, in the Baltic Sea (near the coast), many islands covered of untouched nordic nature.
You can get easily to Rovaniemi just like to other larger Finnish cities by plane. From the airport you can get to the city by regular public transportation. If you don’t mind long travelling you can get to Rovaniemi by train as well.
Today we go to one of the islands near the Finnish capital of Helsinki. There are many islands yet only one island complex is that important that was with other six Finnish landmarks included to UNESCO’s list.
This is the first of the series of articles on known and unknown cities of the land of thousand lakes, Finland. This time we go to a picturesque industrial town in the lake area of Tampere.
