I really appreciate that Siri had an amplifier so that we could easily hear her, yet not so loud that we disturbed others. She was warm and very knowledgeable, answering all our questions about Finnish history and culture clearly and in depth. It was a cold blustery day but we didn't mind since her tour was so good. She is a Helsinki native and you could tell. We loved it!

Best things to do and see in Helsinki

Helsinki is one of the most modern cities in Europe. Capital of Finland, it is the largest and most populated town in the country, and its coast is bathed by the Gulf of Finland. This Scandinavian city is possible to visit in a few days and see the essential and most emblematic places. It has quite a varied architectural style that mixes classic with modern buildings, as well as with different influences from other countries such as Sweden or Russia and also has many museums, designer cafes and many other amazing buildings and monuments.


As in any city, if you want to get to know the culture, history and the most iconic places it is important that you get shown around by a local guide. If you do a free walking tour in Helsinki you can take a guided tour that will allow you to have a complete, different and fun view of the city. Some points of interest that you shouldn’t miss your trip are; Senate Square, where the Cathedral (Tuomiokirkko), the University Library and Casa Sederholm are located, the Lutheran Stone Church (Temppeliaukio) and built directly into the bedrock of the city and illuminated with natural light, the Old Market (Vanha Kauppahalli) and the Market Square are also obligatory stops.


The Sibelius park on the seafront, Esplanadi (urban park), the Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral or the Kampi Chapel of Silence could be included in your route to stretch your legs. A little further away but worthwhile is the Fortress of Suomenlinna on 6 islands and built by the Swedes. You can choose a tour for the morning, afternoon, or evening. All the free tours available in Helsinki have opinions of walkers who have already done a tour in this city and evaluated the experience and the local guide.
