Do you feel like Las Vegas is too hot, Berlin too bohème, Miami too humid, Singapore too clean and Pattaya just totally confusing ? No worries! Helsinki will be the perfect match for you – guaranteed low temperature, high tech and just enough regulation to make everything appear to be under control. This is the country where indestructible mobile phone and Linux kernel were invented.
Helsinki, the capital of Finland, known for the Finnish design and casual-yet-almost-sophisticated drinking culture offers you the chance to familiarize yourself with the birth place of many popular PC, console and mobile games. The murder rate of only 2.2 per 100 000 people makes Finland one of the safest countries for delivering a presentation. Do polar bears roam free in Helsinki? How do you go from being silent in three languages to having incoherent discussions in all of them? What does 176% mobile penetration look like? Come and see for yourself!
