Helsinki is the capital of Finland famous for the Nordic Jugend/modern architecture of the early 20th century. Being a part of the Russian Empire for more than a hundred years, Helsinki is a multi-religious city with two dominant buildings of Lutheran and Orthodox cathedrals in the city center.

During the bus part of the shore excursion you will visit Seurasaari open air museum and see the wooden Finnish countryside homes (from outside). Your excursion will be continued on foot.
