Description

Set out to discover Helsinki, which is packed with must-see places that trace the country's history and culture!

You'll meet your guide at Senate Square in central Helsinki. You'll tour this famous square which is located in the oldest part of the city centre. You'll see the Finnish Government Palace and the Lutheran Cathedral. You can take time to admire their imposing architecture.

You'll also visit Uspenski Cathedral, considered to be the largest Orthodox cathedral in Northern Europe. Its red brick facade and golden domes bear witness to the Russian architectural influence.

You'll stroll through Esplanade Park, Helsinki's "green lungs". You'll love its gorgeous flowerbeds. Just outside the park is the Old Market Hall, a traditional 19th century market where you can sample local specialities and stock up on souvenirs. 

Your tour will end with a visit to the open-air museum on Seurasaari Island. Enjoy a more rural setting where you can discover a variety of wildlife. The numerous wooden buildings are a reminder of the island's agricultural past.
