Sokos Hotel Vaakuna and its magnificent restaurant world welcome you. An historical hotel, refurnished in an elegant way in the heart of Helsinki. Finnish tradition at its best has been preserved in the hotel, built for the Helsinki Olympics in 1952. Helsinki itself, our seaside capital city, and the surrounding national capital region form a diverse Finnish metropolitan area. Helsinki and its environs have much to offer to the traveller: historic monuments, the great architecture of an old city, quality products at fine stores, art, entertainment and top sports events.
