What to see in Helsinki in half a day: my itinerary on foot

The northernmost capital of the European Union countries, Helsinki extends into the Gulf of Finland on several small islands connected by bridges or ferries. His direct neighbour on the Baltic Sea is Tallinn – the capital of Estonia – from which I reached Helsinki by crossing the 80 km separating them.

The point of departure and arrival of the 6 hours (from 1pm to about 7pm) spent in the Finnish capital was the Central Station (Helsingin päärautatieasema) which I reached by tram (lines 6T and 7) from the Länsiterminaali, the arrival terminal of ferries from Tallinn. The station also has a bus that connects the city to the airport, located in Vantaa about 20 km from the center.
