Helsinki & Seurasaari Island with Open-air Museum
Finland is the country famous for its advanced technology and high quality of life. Finnish composer Sibellius is worldwide known, as well as the legendary architect Eliel Saarinen, who’s son – Eero Saarinen constructed St Louise city Arch and several airports in USA. Helsinki – the capital of Finland is famous for the Nordic Jugend/modern architecture of the early 20th century. Being a part of Russian Empire for more than a hundred years, Helsinki is a multi-religious city with two dominant buildings of Lutheran and Orthodox cathedrals in the city center.
Private vehicle with the guide will take you around the city showing the most charming parts such as the embassy quarter, Rock church, Sibellius monument and more. During the bus part of the tour you will visit Seurasaari open air museum and see the wooden Finnish country side homes (from outside). The tour will be continued on foot. City center is quite compact, so in 2 hours we will see most of it. We’ll visit both main cathedrals, see the main railway station which is a unique piece of architecture. Walk the main street and visit the Senate Square. Learn how Helsinki was founded on the oldest square of the city center – Kauppatori – the Market Square. We’ll walk the Espalnade – the main boulevard of the city center and favorite place for local people to come for an evening walk.
