Helsinki

Finland was a province of Sweden from 1362 to 1807 and of Russia from 1807 to independence in 1917. Helsinki was founded by King Gustav Vasa of Sweden in 1550 to entice trade away from Tallinn , but it really flourished only after Suomenlinna Island Fortress was built in 1748. In 1812, Tsar Alexander I named it Finland's capital. Much of the elegant, Neo-Classical architecture, centered around Helsinki Cathedral, was built over the next 80 years. However, Helsinki is also renowned for its Romantic and Modernist buildings, such as the National Museum and Central Railway Station. In the 20th century, the Finns became world leaders in contemporary architecture, as reflected in Alvar Aalto's works and the ultra-modern Kiasma museum.
