Helsinki Cathedral
4.6/5
304 Reviews
Church
Historical Architecture
Explore Helsinki's famous Suurkirkko, also called Helsinki Cathedral, a neoclassical masterpiece of western and Russian styles designed by one of Finland's greatest architects, Carl Ludvig Engel. Survey the Senate Square below you from this magnificent building, originally called St. Nicholas' Church upon its completion in 1852 to honor Nicholas I, Czar of Russia, but renamed when Finland gained its independence in 1917. Discover why more than 350,000 people visit this church each year, with its distinctive green dome and colonnades and pediments radiating out in each direction. Pay a visit to each of the twelve apostles, erected in larger than life zinc statues along the roof by Engel's successor, Ernst Lohrmann.
Temppeliaukio Church
4.5/5
351 Reviews
Church
Whether your interests lie in music, history, architecture or religion, the Temppeliaukio church offers you a unique opportunity to view a monument unlike any other in the world. The commencement of World War II in 1939 prolonged the development of the structure, which resumed in 1961 with an entirely new concept after the brothers and fellow architects Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen won the second competition held for the design of this Lutheran church. Built directly into a natural rock formation that is flooded with light through a glazed dome, the church often doubles as a concert hall because the exposed rock walls provide excellent acoustic qualities.
Sibelius Park & Monument
4.5/5
244 Reviews
Statue/Sculpture
Sibelius Park is located in the northwest of the city centre of Helsinki. The statues in the park are relatively large. One of the statues consists of a number of hollow steel tubes arranged in a wavy shape, like a giant organ. When the wind blows This "pipe organ" will make a very pleasant sound, echoing the surrounding flowers and trees.
Suomenlinna
4.5/5
213 Reviews
Military Site
Historical Site
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Suomenlinna, located on the inner side of the Gulf of Helsinki, was once a military fortress and was listed by UNESCO on the World Heritage List in 1991. Although it is a famous military fortress in Finland, you can see the various fortifications left by the army at the time, but there are still many residents living on the island. This is a very interesting thing, the military atmosphere here is not so strong, on the contrary, because the Nordic Art Center is located here, artists prefer to do some creation on the island.

Trip Moments

Shirley Zhu   
Helsinki, returning to reality in the European continent said that Helsinki is the European city that is the least like Europe, with some prejudice. The narrow streets of the old town, the old buildings of all ages, the municipal square, the red and white churches, the wharfs, the bazaars, the trams that keep moving around... all look like a European port city. There are both the romantic feelings of the ancient European city and the modern architectural lines of the Nordic city. Helsinki is also a garden city that combines urban architecture with natural scenery. The city's buildings are mostly built with light-colored granite and are known as the Northern White City. When we arrived, the streets and alleys were in the snow stage, and it seems that 1 spring is coming. If you said that in the Arctic Circle in the past few days, you are in a wonderland tour, then returning to Helsinki is to return to reality and see the familiar city street scene before you feel that you have returned to Europe. The city center of Helsinki is not large, and the attractions are concentrated. The distance between the attractions is basically no more than 1 km, which is very suitable for the runaway. Walking around to explore a strange city is also my favorite way on the road. On the way through the Esplanade Park, between the Helsinki Marina and Mannheim Street, it is a great place for tourists to take a walk and relax. Helsinki's presidential palace has a famous bronze fountain sculpture - Amanda, a bronze statue of Helsinki, located at the South Pier in Helsinki. It is a symbol of Finland, and Helsinki is also known as the daughter of the Baltic.
