The city of Helsinki sits on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland in the south of the country.
It’s a vibrant seaside city made up of a series of islands and beautiful green parks. You’ll want to get some great photos when you are here so we’ve listed the 7 most Instagrammable spots in the city.
1. Temppeliaukio Church
You might not normally visit churches on your travels but you should make an exception for this Lutheran church.
Built by two brothers in 1969, it’ s built into solid rock and is a stunning building. You’ll find more info about it here.
