Travel guide: Helsinki
Helsinki, Finland

Helsinki is known as a 'city of architecture'. As one of Europe’s youngest capitals, it was first shaped by Neoclassical architecture and later became the world’s largest concentration of Jugendstil buildings and National Romanticism. It was Alvar Aalto, who put Finland’s modern architecture on the world map. Helsinki features several of his masterpieces such as the academic bookstore and Finlandia Hall. Recently, the city experienced a renaissance of wooden architecture (see Kamppi Chapel) as well as major international art centers such as The Kiasma (1998) designed by Steven Holl and the Helsinki Music Centre.
