The Monocle Travel Guide Series – Helsinki
Founded in London in 2007, Monocle magazine is at home all over the world. Thanks to its network of international offices (London, New York, Toronto, Zurich, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore) and more than 30 correspondents worldwide, the team always delivers valuable first-hand information.
The Monocle Travel Guide Series is aimed at travellers who do not see themselves as tourists, but want to move around in a foreign city like locals. With an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of the metropolises, the Monocle team puts together the best insider addresses that are indispensable for a city trip off the beaten track.
Helsinki is a tale of two cities. Arrive mid-winter and you’ll find a frosty wonderland of snow-caked streets, with the residents holed up in cosy cafés. Come in summer, when the sun refuses to set, and you’ll catch locals partying into the early hours and leaping gleefully into the Baltic Sea. Whatever the season, Helsinki’s streets, forests and islands are ripe for exploring. So pull on your snow boots—or your sandals—and join us for a tour of this confident and cultured city.
