Helsinki is a city located near the Gulf of Finland. It has a remarkable cool climate, although without any special frosts, but it is blown by the wind from all directions of the world due to lack of protection in the form of mountains. Tourists from St. Petersburg fell in love with it, especially because of the similar “home” architecture, a more dynamic rhythm of life and a fairly simple way to get there without a visa. Like in any other capital, there are enough attractions here. All of them are mainly located in the city center, and therefore it is not long to get to them. There is a large zoo, which occupies an entire island and the Sirena water park in the suburbs. There are a couple of Lutheran churches – the Cathedral and the church located in the rock in the Toolo quarter. The first one is the most important church of the capital, the second one is carved into the stone layer and covered with a glass dome for illumination. But the most visited is the monument to the composer Jean Sibelius, a place with many copper pipes of different sizes, installed in an interesting way. < /a> The hotel service offers various accommodation options, these are hostels, Hotel Room hotels or the most ordinary hotels, most of which are four-star.
