There are very many things to do in Helsinki. Two very famous attractions are the island Korkeasaari - which is also the country’s biggest zoo – and the fortress island of Suomenlinna (a UNESCO World Heritage site). The most popular museums are Ateneum Art Museum for classical Finnish art, Kiasma Art Museum for modern art and the historical museum called the National Museum of Finland. These are all located in the center of Helsinki. The Linnanmäki amusement park is also quite close to the city center. Of course the city is also full of statues, parks and architecturally important buildings worth seeing. And the night-life is vivid! In the winter, we have plenty of snow, so you can try iceskating or skiing.
