Helsinki is located in the southern part of Finland, on the Baltic Sea shore. IT is not as old as many of its neighbouring cities, being established in 1550 by King Gustav I of Sweden, but it still has that old world European charm. The city really struggled in the early years being beset by poverty, plague and war. It took until more recent years for Helsinki to really blossom, and in the latter half of the 20th century, it really started to shine as a prime destination in Europe.
