Overview of your Helsinki tour:

Come discover Finnish design, art and architecture with me. I will introduce you to Finnish culture and traditions. Driving through Helsinki we see the main sights and then out of town, to the countryside. First we visit Hvittraesk Museum, built early 1900's by architects Herman Gezellius, Armas Lindgren and Eliel Saarinen. The main building, designed in National Romantic style, Art Nouveau, built of logs and natural stone, was both a common studio and a home for Eliel Saarinen and Armas Lindgren for some years after it was completed. Located outside Helsinki, 25 min drive through the countryside. Then we return to Helsinki and see the highlights, including the Railway Station designed by Saarinen. On the way we stop and visit Gallen-Kallela's home Tarvaspaa art museum. Please note that museums are closed on Mondays. Time permitting, we pop in the Finnish Design shop, iittala, on the Esplanade. This excursion can be customized and my hobby is design, art and architecture
