Tours in Helsinki with experienced guides

This bustling metropolis is justly considered to be one of the best places to live on the planet. Tourists will be enthralled by highlight tours of the capital of Finland, during which they will be able to visit museums, famous music halls, and theatres and taste traditional Finnish delicacies.

A trip to Helsinki will not be complete without taking part in one of the annual festivals. You will learn about the existence of a festival "Night of arts" from an English-speaking guide, and if you come here in August, you can see how it is celebrated. Merry companies of circus performers entertain the audience in parks, operatic performances are shown on screens all over the city, and performances of the philharmonic orchestra are waiting for classical music lovers.

During the tour of Helsinki in English an experienced guide will tell you about the festival of the Forces of Light, which is held in the Finnish capital during the winter solstice. The city folk lights bonfires and symbolically disperse the gloom of winter in different ways. The light show in Helsinki is an extraordinary event that will be an icing on the cake to the tour of the city.

However, the Finnish capital is interesting not only for its festivals. The Excurzilla Project has prepared a list of the most iconic locations in Helsinki that are worth your attention:

  • Kauppatori is the most famous market in Helsinki where you can buy local pieces of art (including gastronomic one) - deerskins, woodcuts, Finnish meat loafs;
  • the Linnanmaki Amusement Park, which is best to visit with a personal guide; the park has 44 exciting amusement rides, including "Roller Coaster", "Haunted House", and "Free Fall Tower";
  • the Kamppi Chapel on the Narinkka Square where you can take time out after walks through bustling Helsinki;
  • the Esplanadi Park in the centre of the Finnish capital, which is always popular with guests of the city and locals; take a walk along its green paths, have a meal for a symbolic price in an old cafe, watch street performers - and you will definitely want to visit this place next time;
  • Helsinki Cathedral on the Senate Square: a 19th-century Lutheran religious building in the spirit of neoclassicism with white columns and statues of the 12 apostles on the roof;
  • a harsh system of fortifications of Suomenlinna, which served as a reliable line of defence in the history of Finland.

Colourful and exalted Helsinki continues to be a bright star in the Northern European firmament. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this city - and it will open all its beauty to you.
