About

What to do in Virtual Helsinki?

Virtual Helsinki is a digital twin of the Helsinki City centre, created in high-quality 3D for virtual reality. It is available for anyone to license.

The Virtual Capital of the World

Helsinki is the first interactive city that can be explored and visited virtually. Virtual tourism will become more popular in the future and that is the reason we started to create an entire city to VR in high quality.
The city is based on the present day but it will also have futuristic and historic versions. In the future, the users will be able to interact with each other which will make the virtual visits as close as possible to actually being in the city.

Application

What is Virtual Helsinki?

Virtual Tourism

Future of travelling will happen via virtual reality for many. It can deepen the content of physical travelling. A virtual tourist might move from present day to history, visit places that are difficult to access or go shopping in a virtual souvenir store and have the items delivered home through the mail. Virtual tourism will enable fast trips around the world and meeting other tourists and locals, while being the most eco-friendly way to travel.
"At its best, digitalization is increasingly successful services for the citizens and a better Helsinki experience for tourists. A virtual experience representing top quality is a good example of how Helsinki can be sensed in a new way.” ―Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor of Helsinki
