Head to some of Helsinki's top cultural landmarks and historic monuments. Then tour the UNESCO World Heritage site of Suomenlinna, sprawled across a series of six small islands. Helsinki's hotspots open new doors to adventure on this fun half-day tour with a guide.
Your five-hour tour starts in the morning with a pick-up from central Helsinki, then it's straight out to soak up the splendor of the Finnish capital. Find out what happened in historic landmarks, from the Olympic Stadium and Sibelius Monument to Market Square and Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral.
Your guide will disperse some fun facts along the way - and there are loads of great photo opportunities too. Stop for memory-making snaps at Senate Square, then board a ferry to Suomenlinna.
As one of the world's largest sea fortresses, Suomenlinna was built during the Swedish era as a maritime fortress and a base for the Archipelago Fleet! See the artillery and defensive walls built across six linked islands, and discover top sites like Suomenlinna Church and Jetty Barracks.
A fascinating trip for anyone interested in the history of Helsinki and Finland.
So who was Sibelius and why did he get a park and a monument named after him? Jean Sibelius, the man behind incredible works such as Violin Concerto and Symphony No. 2, is considered Finland's greatest composer. Sibelius's music was so important to Finland during its fight for independence from Russia that his birthday is celebrated as both Flag Day and the Day of Finnish Music.
