Description

This shared shore excursion begins with a scenic drive towards Esplanadi Street and the Grand Mannerheim Boulevard. Along the way, we will see the Opera House, Finnlandia Concert Hall, the National Musueum, Parliament Building, and the Presidential Palace.

We will have an opportunity to take pictures at the famous Sibelius Park, named after the renowned Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, The main attraction here is the Sibelius Monument, an abstract grouping of hundreds of steel pipes. After the park, we continue on to the Olympic Stadium, the site of the 1952 summer Olympics. Next, we arrive at the Rock Church, carved directly out of the side of the mountain and topped by a magnificent copper dome. Because of its acoustics, it is often used as a concert venue. The next church on the itinerary is the Uspensky Cathedral, the largest Orthodox church in Western Europe. As we drive through the city center we will also see the Helsinki Central train station with its famous clock tower as well as the beloved Havis Amanda fountain, voted year after year as the most beautiful sculpture in the Finnish capital.
