Helsinki

Ny2TTRHXBLt3TJWeaR1YJt93This postcard, picturing a few of the sights of the Finnish capital, came as a surprise from Sini. 🙂

Helsinki is the capital and largest city of Finland. Helsinki is Finland’s major political, educational, financial, cultural and research centre as well as one of northern Europe’s major cities. Approximately 70% of foreign companies operating in Finland have settled in the Helsinki region. In the Economist Intelligence Unit’s August 2012 Liveability survey, assessing the best and worst cities to live in, Helsinki placed eighth best overall. In 2011, the Monocle Magazine in turn ranked Helsinki the most liveable city in the world in its Liveable Cities Index 2011.
