Helsinki - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Was amazing for us as a family with young children. - Dec 2022

Helsinki is an excellent place for anyone. - Oct 2021

Helsinki is a great city for singles, couples, and families. Each demographic will be able to find plenty of people and activities to meet their needs and interests. - Oct 2018

Yes, it is great for singles/couples/families. Singles will love the nightlife of plentiful pubs, bars, and clubs. Couples will enjoy the same night life as well as the traveling. Families will love the endless recreational activities, travel, and entertainment in Helsinki, and the surrounding Baltic/European countries. Overall, you will spend the same amount of money paying for drinks/nightlife as you will traveling in Finland or in surrounding Europe. It is a win-win. - Jul 2012

Yeah... I think it is good for everyone if you can handle the dark winters, finding your own things to do, and not rely on anyone. Making friends here has been difficult. People stick to their own agenda (both Finns and expats). - Jan 2011

Great for both. Although families sometime find it difficult due to the cost of living. - May 2010

This city is great for all. - Apr 2009

Yes for all. Singles and couples have a great time with all the bars, nightclubs and travel opportunities. Families love it because there are tons of parks and green areas, many family-orientated activities and it's safe. - Mar 2008
