Helsinki, Finland is the capital and largest city of Finland with over 1.4 million people. Helsinki was established in 1550 and remained fairly small for some time. Helsinki was noted only for not being worth notice to the greater world. The city suffered through disease, wars, and poverty for at least the first 250 years of its existence. Starting in about 1810, the city seemed to find its footing and grow, and in 1952 it even hosted the Olympic Games.
As many westerners might think about a city that is nearly 500 years old, all kinds of museums are an important part of the city and getting to know it. Finland and Scandinavian countries in general have been home, sometimes permanent, sometimes temporary, to some of the greatest artists in history. This museum has works from Munch, Tove Jansson, Carl Larsson, Pablo Picasso, and Helene Schjerfbeck.
