City Introduction

Its location between the East and the West has made Helsinki into a distinctive European capital. The past splendour of the Imperial age and the persistent identity of this small nation have blended into a serene society of the future. International studies published at the beginning of the 21st century speak out Helsinki among the most attractive cities of the world because of its quality of life and living conditions. Helsinki is just the right size; its services are second to none, and the latest high technology and the closeness to nature meet one another. The vision of an international Helsinki extends to 2025. The Helsinki metropolitan area vision calls for Helsinki to develop as an innovation and business centre based on the power of science, art, creativity and good services. The objective of Helsinki’s international activities is a globally competitive Helsinki.
