The Helsinki zoo is situated on an island. We went there with the ferry which is a nice way of traveling. With the Helsinki Card we got a little bit of discount. The zoo has a nice and quiet atmosphere, which helped us to really enjoy watching the animals and the nature on the island. The island is the zoo’s greatest feature though. The animals in the zoo are not that special. Nonetheless a recommended attraction to visit when you are in Helsinki!
