Both these things are important in Helsinki, as this is a place where housing tends to be rather expensive. If you find it difficult to research for suitable accommodation, check out the best Airbnb recommendations in Helsinki, Finland below.

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.
