Helsinki

Helsinki is the capital of Finland. The city is located in the south of the country on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. Helsinki covers an area of ​​1,140 sq. Km and includes 315 islands; more than a third of the city is occupied by parks and open areas. Of major importance for the whole of Finland is the country’s largest Helsinki port, through which cargo passes and from where regular passenger flights operate throughout the Baltic.

Helsinki was founded by order of the Swedish king Gustav Vasa in 1550. By his decree, several hundred residents of the city of Porvoo settled in the territory of the current urban area of ​​Arabia.

Costa Dorada

Costa Daurada (“Gold Coast”) – the coast of the province of Tarragona got its name by chance: the fine sand of endless beaches glistens in the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, like placers of gold. From the winds and cyclones from the north and west, the Mediterranean coast is well protected first by the Pyrenees, and then by the Catalan mountains. They not only decorate the landscape, but also create a wonderful sustainable climate – just look at the local palm trees, pines and cypresses. Thanks to the mountains in Costa Daurada, the weather is fine from March to October, which is why tourists come here almost all year. Continue reading
