Helsinki is a tale of two cities. Mid-winter it’s a frosty wonderland of snow-caked streets, the residents holed up in cosy, impeccably designed cafés. Come summer, the sun refuses to set and you’ll catch locals partying merrily into the early hours and leaping gleefully into the Baltic Sea. Join us for a tour of this confident and cultured city.
These are books that go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure you get the best out of a city—no matter how short your stay. Designed to be compact and collectable, they are also discerning; Monocle’s team will tell you where’s best for everything from some tasty fast food to where to get the local experience.
