Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
Located in the Uusimaa region of southern Finland, Helsinki is both the capital and largest city of Finland. With a population of just over 600,000, the city is quirky, home to many creative people and is rapidly developing a reputation for its food.
There are art nouveau buildings, dozens of museums showcasing how the country has developed and, as a harbour side city, there’s a great waterfront scene.
Despite being a capital city, it still manages to retain the feel of a small-town.
If you’re arriving by plane, you’ll land at the International airport in Vantaa, some 18 kilometres to the north of the city.
Rather than get a taxi or attempt to negotiate the public transport system, simply contact RentABus.com and we’ll provide you with convenient and affordable airport transfers to Helsinki in one of our comfortable minibuses, coaches or, for that extra-special occasion, our stylish limousines.
If you’re on a short visit to Helsinki, don’t leave without seeing Suomenlinna. Known as the ‘Gibraltar of the North’, it was once the greatest sea fortress in the Baltic.
Now you can visit this UNESCO World Heritage site to get a taste of life from times gone by, and explore the old fortifications and catacombs covering numerous small islands, which are connected by bridges.
There are also restaurants, cafes, theatres and museums, and it’s just a 15-minute ferry ride from the market square or Kauppatori.
You can explore some of the other islands by ferry too or by taking a sightseeing cruise. One of the most popular is a trip to Seurasaari Open Air Museum where you’ll not only get to walk one of the many trails on this lovely little island, but you’ll see a collection of authentic old Finnish houses which have been brought here from all around the country.
A visit to Korkeasaari is also recommended, especially if you love animals, as this is where you’ll find Helsinki Zoo. There’s also an old fortress on Vallisaari, which can be accessed by ferry.
To learn more about Finnish life and the history of Helsinki, pay a visit to Helsingin Kaupunginmuseo, which comprises a number of small museums that are scattered around the centre of the city.
Don’t miss Ratikkamuseo as it houses a collection of vintage trams and gives you an insight into how the city has changed over the years.
Ateneum Art Museum contains the largest collection of paintings and sculptures in the country, including many by notable Finnish artists, while the Design Museum is filled with examples of modern commercial and industrial designs, together with modern art.
For exhibitions by contemporary Finnish artists, head to the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art.
If shopping is more your style, you’ll find Helsinki’s city centre on the southern peninsula at the end of Mannerheimintie, the main thoroughfare. Both Aleksanterinkatu and Esplanadi provide all the shops that you’ll need, and lead to Senate Square the historical centre of Helsinki.
If you’re craving a bit of excitement, you might want to visit Linnanmäki, the oldest amusement park in Finland and home to an old wooden roller coaster, or how about the Serena Water Amusement Park, the largest water park in the Nordic countries?
If you’re seeking indoor entertainment, Flamingo Entertainment Centre includes a spa, and a glow-in-the-dark golf course, plus a small casino, a cinema and plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops together with one of the largest nightclubs in the country.
