Walking in Helsinki

It’s no secret that many Russians living in the North-Western district spend their weekends in Finland.

Today, they can easily rent a cottage on the lake, and relax in the fresh air, without worrying about anything. And if you want to diversify your vacation, you can go to see the nearest city.

Of course, if you rented a cottage in the vicinity of the capital of Finland – Helsinki, then you are lucky. There are places to go and things to see in this city.

For example, we recommend visiting the Senate square and the Cathedral. In the center of the square is a monument to the Russian Emperor Alexander II, who played a major role in the history of the independence of Finland.

Also visit the unique Church of Temppeliaukio, which was created entirely in the rock. It was built in 1961 by architects Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen. The internal volume is carved in stone, the ceiling is 24 meters in diameter and decorated with copper wire. The rounded copper roof creates unique acoustics. Organ music concerts are often held in the Church.

The area to the South of the Shopping area and the southern Esplanade is noteworthy. There are yacht clubs along the coastline, wonderful terraced parks, and a beautiful view of the Bay area from there. You can easily rent a yacht and take a walk along the Bay.

An interesting area where previously wealthy residents of St. Petersburg arranged their cottages. It is located on the very edge of the southern Harbor behind the Silja line terminal. Now these are residential buildings, one of them houses the Mannerheim Museum.

The Fortress Of Suomenlinna

Special attention should be paid to the sea fortress of Suomenlinna, which is now part of the city. You can reach it by ferry from the Shopping area. The medieval structure literally breathes the history of knights and kings.

You can’t get around the whole city in one day, so stay here longer. Restaurants with surprisingly delicious local cuisine, as well as various bars, theaters and concert venues provide great opportunities for entertainment in the city.

The best time to visit the capital, of course, will be the Christmas holidays. Helsinki is turning into a fairytale city where a holiday reigns on every street.

Part of the main reason for visiting Helsinki is shopping. Everyone knows that in the shopping centers of the city you can find everything from brand collections to handmade Souvenirs. Seasonal discounts, high level of service, and convenient location made the capital of Finland a Mecca for shopaholics from Russia and Europe.
