The Daughter of the Baltics. Remodeled by Russian czars along the lines of Saint Petersburg, Helsinki manages to combine its role as an international metropolis with small-town charm.

How does Helsinki do it? The city combines old-time port charms with modern vibes. The Swedes established it as a strategic trading port in the 18th century. Helsinki's eclectic mix of styles offers a rare treat for architecture buffs. The buildings combine Nordic Minimalism with Byzantine-Russian, Austrian-influenced Art Nouveau, Neoclassical, and Modernist styles.

Route for Helsinki tour

The churches in Helsinki are high on the must-see list. You should visit the Lutheran and Russian Orthodox Cathedrals. There's also the 1960s-built Rock Church, blasted from bedrock. And don't miss the impressive Senate Square. Other hits in the center of Helsinki include the classy Esplanade shopping streets and park. Then there's the Sibelius monument and the lively South Harbor market. Save time for a visit to Suomenlinna, a UNESCO-listed fortress archipelago, just a 15-minute ferry ride from Helsinki's South Harbor. Here you'll experience scenic tranquility that contrasts with the bustling city. Helsinki's direct flights to North America make it an ideal place to start or finish a tour of the Baltics.

Things to do in Helsinki

Helsinki might be a relatively modern city but it has plenty of sights to see, and quite spread out. Our favorite way to see these is via the Sustainable City Tour, which will take you around all the highlights. Combine it with a boat tour to see another side of the city too. One place that's well worth visiting on your own is the UNESCO-listed fortress archipelago of Suomenlinna, a 15 minute ferry ride from Helsinki's market square. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider for adding later.
