During the Winter War (1939-40) and the Continuation War (1941-44) Helsinki suffered from Soviet bombs. Thanks to successful air defense Helsinki was spared from large-scale destruction and only few bombs hit populated areas.
Nowadays the city itself is home for 560 000 people but in the greater Helsinki area live around 1 300 000 Finns - one fourth of the population.
