Accommodation in Helsinki
Helsinki is the northernmost urban area in the world, yet its climate is reminiscent of more southern temperate cities, largely due to its location near the waters of the Gulf Stream. The city has a wide variety of museums and art galleries, as well as theatrical and musical venues, with most located near the southern tip of the peninsula. Accommodations in the central city are preferred, because there are a great number of parks in the central city, which make walking to the sites safe and enjoyable. Accommodation in this part of Helsinki can be expensive, but you can find cheap apartments for rent through the Wimdu network, or make use of the city's hostels. Many of the buildings located in the central district are of neoclassical design, though Art Nouveau has played a strong role in the surrounding residential buildings. The Senate Square serves as the city's focal point, where you will find the grand Helsinki Cathedral and the Government Palace. It is also the location of several major events, like international art exhibits. The three historical buildings, which hold the Finnish National Gallery,are top tourist attractions. Getting to the sites is made easier with the tram, subway, and bus stations throughout the city.
