TOURIST INFORMATION

Helsinki offers the visitor a surprising number of different attractions to visit such as the Temppeliaukio Church, the Finlandia Hall, designed by the famous architect Alvar Aalto, or the huge outdoor market alongside Helsinki harbor. Reminders of the Czars' influence are found throughout Helsinki, from the Russian Orthodox Cathedral and the Senate Square to the fortress on Suomenlinna Island. Enjoy Helsinki's best sights from a sightseeing bus or by taking the tram 3T or 3B. As for souvenirs, Finland is famous for its design glassware, ceramics, jewellery, and textiles. They can be found effortlessly in shops and department stores such as Stockmann’s.

For those of you intending to stay a few days longer, we would like to recommend a trip to the Estonian capital Tallinn. The fast ships take you there in 2,5 hrs. For those who can stay even longer, a visit to St. Petersburg by train is also an attracting alternative. This, however requires a tourist visa.
