Travel through the streets of Helsinki in search of the city's unique architecture, historic monuments, and rich cultural history. Begin your adventure with a drive along the harbor, getting a glimpse of the fleet of Finnish icebreakers safely docked in the summer. Continue along down the famous Mannerheim Street, snapping photos of Parliament House, the National Museum, and Finlandia Hall, Helsinki's opera and concert venue designed by legendary architect Alvar Aalto. View the Olympic Stadium which hosted the games in 1952 and then stroll the serene and lush grounds of Sibelius Park. Marvel at the monument dedicated to the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, created using 600 steel pipes. Then, step foot inside the stunning Temppeliaukio Rock Church, a one-of-a-kind church blasted out of solid rock. Nature and architecture meet in this magnificent building.
