Finland is known not only for its beautiful nature, architecture, snow and sauna, but also for its world-class primary and secondary education system and buzzing start-up business communities. In just half a century it has transformed from a poor agrarian nation to one of the world’s most prosperous and adaptable countries that takes pride in the equitability of its social structures.

Helsinki is an easily approachable town right on the Baltic Sea with a vibrant cultural life. You will find more information on finding your way in Helsinki by following the links below. Our staff Kari, Saara and Katariina will do their best to make your stay enjoyable.
