Helsinki’s open and friendly residents wish visitors, along with new events and trends, a very warm welcome to this dynamic and lively city.
Restaurant Day, flea markets, We Love Helsinki happenings and block parties are all examples of the flourishing urban culture. Indeed, Helsinki is alive throughout the year. Events, conferences, meetings, festivals and a wide range of smaller happenings are organised regularly in Helsinki, and in the summertime, the streets and parks are also packed with fun-loving people. And it’s worth remembering that the midnight sun hardly sets at all, allowing the active nightlife to continue uninterrupted into the morning.
Most of the locals speak the English language fluent and are happy to assist visitors. Helsinki’s personable, multilingual and friendly residents are among the city’s greatest ambassadors, also for visitors.
