The Capital Since 1812

Helsinki a small city, or as we say a human-sized city. We have culture, museums and shops but also a lot of green space and the sea. Helsinki was founded by a Swedish king and made the capital of Finland by a Russian tsar. Finland has always been between east and west.


I will meet you at your hotel at 9. 00. You will be able to explore the main sights of Helsinki by car. The tour will start with a drive to the Senate Square with the Government building and the University. You will have the option to visit he outdoor market before the tour will continue o drive along the sea shore of Helsinki.
