Vantaa is a suburb of Helsinki, Finland located just outside of the city centre and making up part of the Greater Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The area has an ancient past and was first mentioned in the mid 14th century, when King Magnus II of Sweden granted the Estonian Padise Monastery the right to fish there. The suburb has since enjoyed a cultural connection with Sweden, so Swedish remains one of two official languages there. As the home of the largest airport in Finland, Vantaa is a travel hub in the region and has many amenities and shopping areas for travellers.
- Learn and be entertained by the interactive displays found at the Heureka Science Centre in this suburb, one of the top educational centres in Helsinki, which aims to develop scientific knowledge.
- See the rich history of Vantaa and Helsinki unfold on a trip to the Vantaa City Museum that is housed in the oldest station building in all of Finland and features dynamic displays.
- Take a tasty tour of the Fazer Chocolate Factory, where you can see how their delicious treats are made whilst enjoying samples of the products along the way.
The Helsinki-Vantaa Airport is the largest airport in the country, so it acts as a gateway into the city as well as a hub for the entire region. There is plenty of ground transport from the airport to the city centre of Helsinki by train, bus, or taxi. You can also take a bus directly to the Tikkurila rail station, which is the central station for the suburb and has connections to other lines heading to Helsinki. Most people that visit Finland will spend at least some time in Vantaa, so it is a great starting point for adventure.
