Finland is the country famous for its advanced technology and high quality of life. Finnish composer Sibellius is known worldwide, as well as the legendary architect Eliel Saarinen, and his son Eero Saarinen who constructed the St Louis city Arch and several airports in the USA.  

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.

We’ll walk the Espalnade – the main boulevard of the city center and favorite place for local people to come for an evening walk.

Your guide will advise you about places to visit on your own such as restaurants, museums, and interesting sites, while showing you the location where you’ll meet the transfer vehicle to get back to the port.
