Helsinki is the capital of Finland, and has been considered by The Economist in 2014 as one of the top 10 cities in the world to live in, so there is no excuse for not giving a try to this beautiful city.

It is a cosmopolitan city with great job opportunities. And many young foreigners, who choose this destination each year for Erasmus or seek employment opportunities, finally extend their stay.

If Finnish or Swedish are new for you, you can get by with a good level of English.

This city has a fantastic public transport, and to go around the best choices are the subway, tram or train.

If you decide to visit, during your stay you cannot miss Soumelina Island, the Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral, the National Museum of Finland and its famous market.

Its official language is Finnish, and the vast majority of the population also has high skills in English or Swedish.

As good northern city winters are cold and heavy snow, and summers are cool but milder than in other northern areas.
