Despite Helsinki not being the oldest city in the Baltic region (it was founded only in 1550) its historical and cultural legacy is as prominent as the other capitals. However, in terms of life standard and economic development, Helsinki is one of the undisputed leaders of the whole world.

Throughout its history that has started during the Swedish rule, the city has survived a handful of notable events. Just like the many cities of the modern Baltic countries, Helsinki has been constantly passed around between Sweden and Russia. Even though the major role of the city has been defined since its establishment, due to the geographical and strategically important location, its real prime arrived in the beginning of the 19th century with the Russian emperor Alexander I, who had conquered Finland and turned Helsinki into its capital. It was also the time when the majority of the city was built, including the Cathedral that can be seen from the webcam. One of the most notable sites built in that period is the Swedish theater that is situated right next to the Klaus K hotel and is also seen from the stream. This theater, where the plays are still performed in the Swedish language, became the first National Stage of Finland. Almost appended to the theater is the Esplanadi – a popular park among the Helsinki citizens and its guest.

Upon becoming the independent Finland’s capital in 1917, Helsinki not only survived the whole World War II but also became one of the key capitals in the region, having held the summer Olympic Games in 1952.

Today, Helsinki can be duly considered to be one of the largest centers of Europe. Apart from all of its agglomeration consisting of almost one and a half million people, the amount is growing by several thousand every month, it holds the leading positions in the quality of life, security and friendly business environment ratings. All of that confirms the importance of the city’s influence on the whole region.
