Happy Birthday Helsinki!

Tomorrow the whole city celebrates. Not just in the city but in many areas in Helsinki there will be something happening. So don’t miss this important day.

Radio Aalto Helsinki Day concert 2012

The Helsinki Day starts traditionally at 9:00 in the courtyard of the City Hall where the Mayor Jussi Pajunen will hold a speech, followed by some live music. During the day countless events will take place all over the city. One of the highlights will be the free Helsinki Day concert by Radio Aalto at Kaisaniemi starting at 15:00 with performances by Anna Puu, Haloo Helsinki!, Sunrise Avenue and many more. All of tomorrow’s events are listed on theofficial website.

June 12 was chosen as Helsinki Day since this was the day in 1550 that the Swedish King Gustav I founded the city at the mouth of Vantaa River.
