Arrival in Helsinki according to your own itinerary. The Finnish capital is a modern cultural city, which was influenced throughout 450 years of history by the cultures of the East and West and has a character quite different from the Scandinavian capitals. The city manages to retain a small-town feel, despite the fact that Greater Helsinki region has a population of over 1.3 million. Walking tours of the city centre or of the magnificent Suomenlinna Maritime Fortress are defining memories and essential Helsinki experience. Sights of interest include the historical centre, Senate Square, the Parliament building, the Kiasma modern arts museum, Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church) and more.
