Uusimaa

Uusimaa – region of urban sophistication and coastal charm

Uusimaa, the southernmost region of Finland, encompasses a diverse landscape of bustling cities, charming coastal towns and verdant countryside. Home to the nation’s capital, Helsinki, Uusimaa offers a dynamic fusion of historic landmarks such as the iconic Suomenlinna Sea Fortress and contemporary architectural marvels like the Helsinki Central Library Oodi. Beyond the capital, visitors can explore the idyllic charms of Porvoo, Finland’s second-oldest town, with its cobblestone streets and iconic red warehouses. The region’s archipelago, consisting of over 1,000 islands, provides a unique opportunity for island hopping, sailing and outdoor activities.
