I’m originally from wonderful little Luxembourg and came to Helsinki for a student exchange in 2010. I fell for the place and stayed for good – so far my choice has proven me right every day.
Helsinki has everything within walking distances, without it losing its cosmopolitan and Capital city feeling. I love the proximity to nature – the beautiful harbours and natural sceneries, the islands around the coast are breathtaking every time.
But you also have the modern city centre with great shopping areas and the different town districts that all have their own unique flair and secrets to discover.
