Helsinki is geographically situated on the southern peninsula by the Gulf of Finland. Facing Tallinn (Estonia) across the bay, a number of islands, which are part of Helsinki, can be reached via boats and ferries. North of Helsinki leads to other cities in Finland and connects to the borders of Sweden and Russia.
Helsinki, the largest city in Finland, is the nation's capital and its administrative, economic, scientific and cultural centre. The central parts of Helsinki are located on a peninsula and the city has a strong maritime flavour. Whole suburbs are located on islands and the coastal areas of Helsinki are enriched by an archipelago of 300 islands. Helsinki is also a green city, with one third of the land area preserved for parks and other green areas.
