Both these things are important in Helsinki, as this is a place where housing tends to be rather expensive.

The beauty of Helsinki and its special vibe
There is something special about Helsinki - the sea, the green areas, the wooden houses, they all give Helsinki a special vibe. Walking around residential areas with wooden houses is a very relaxing activity, and so is having a picnic with a seaside view. And while you’re planning the picnic, don’t forget to get some of the tasty traditional Finnish pastries. The city center can get rather crowded, making it a good spot for people watching. Helsinki is for sure a place worth visiting. Make the most of your trip with one of these Airbnbs in Helsinki.
