HELSINKI HIGH­LIGHTS

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO - —JL

With Fin­land cel­e­brat­ing a cen­tury of in­de­pen­dence this year, there’s no bet­ter time to drop in and soak up the charm of its sea­side cap­i­tal. Helsinki Art Mu­seum (HAM) is mount­ing a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion be­tween March 3 and July 30 ti­tled “Mod­ern Life!”— draw­ing on the col­lec­tions of five lo­cal in­sti­tu­tions to chron­i­cle the de­vel­op­ment of Fin­nish mod­ernism from 1917–1968. Later this spring, Helsinki Zoo will un­veil its three­hectare Fin­nish For­est, a rocky pine habi­tat fea­tur­ing all the coun­try’s large car­ni­vores—ex­cept for wolves—along­side a host of en­dan­gered birds and small mam­mals. Helsinki is also gear­ing up for its an­nual birth­day bash on June 12, with over 100 free events dot­ting the city for Helsinki Day ( vis­ithelsinki.fi).
