Get ready to explore Finland's beautiful capital, where breathtaking nature meets modernity and design while still being people-friendly. Surrounded by an archipelago of 315 small islands and strategically located in the heart of the Baltic region, the city is full of surprises! Jump aboard a comfortable City Sightseeing hop-on-hop-off bus to learn about its history and culture and jump off whenever you want to explore further.
Start your tour at Senate Square - which is dominated by 4 main buildings - Helsinki Cathedral, the Government Palace, the main building of the University of Helsinki, and the National Library of Finland. Jump off at Eira and explore the beautiful Art Nouveau style architecture of this colorful neighborhood. Hop on again and head over to the flea market for souvenirs or to Market Square. Here you can treat yourself to a delicious meal: the salmon soup with rye bread is a must-try!
Continue the tour to see the impressive Temppeliaukio Church carved in rock and the Sibelius Monument, the soundwave-like sculpture made of organ pipes in honor of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Finish off your day with a visit to the National Museum of Finland.
