Itinerary

We see and experience one of Europe's biggest Old Towns in Russian Empire-style, from the Russian era 1809 - 1917. Here the "new" Helsinki was built > 200 years ago. You will find the Senate Square with Senate house, the university with ab. 40 000 students, the cathedral, the both outside and inside very beautiful National library, architecture from both the old Swedish time through the Russian time to modern time. The House of the Estates and the National archive are close by.
We visit the Market Place including the shopping area at the Esplanade Park, from where you have a view to the sea fortress Suomenlinna/Sveaborg, built 250yrs ago during the Swedish realm.

The unique Rock Church blasted into the bedrock + the Sibelius monument along our long coastline and park drive is worthwhile.
