Helsinki: Helsinki has a character quite different from the other Scandinavian capitals, and in many ways is closer in mood (and certainly in looks) to the major cities of eastern Europe. Much of central Helsinki is a succession of compact granite blocks, interacted with characteristic buildings, alongside waters, green areas and glass-covered office blocks as well as shopping centres. The city is hemmed in on three sides by water, and all the things of interest are within walking distance of one another. The streets have a youthful buzz, and the short summer is acknowledged by crowds strolling the boulevards, cruising the shopping arcades and socializing in the outdoor cafés and restaurants.The museums, especially the National Museum and the Art Museum of the Atheneum, reveal the country's folklore and culture.
