Helsinki Free Tour

Visit 19th and 20th century parts of the city

About the Helsinki Free Tour

This introductory walking tour covers the basics of Helsinki and Finland at a relatively quick pace and answers many of the questions you might have about Helsinki and Finland. When did Finland become independent? Is the Finnish language really so hard? Is the sauna culture really so important? Why is Finland so happy? Why is there a Russian Orthadox cathedral? Why are the street signs in two languages?

This tour takes place in the 19th and 20th century parts of the city around the Senate Square, Market Square, Esplanadi the Central Railway Station and ends near the Oodi library.
