We enjoy breakfast before embarking on our half-day tour of Helsinki, Finland’s southern capital.
Helsinki sits on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland. Its central avenue, Mannerheimintie, is flanked by institutions including the National Museum, tracing Finnish history from the Stone Age to the present. Also, on Mannerheimintie are the imposing Parliament House and Kiasma, a contemporary art museum. The ornate redbrick Uspenski Cathedral overlooks a harbour.
During the tour of the Finnish capital, you will admire the major sights such as the Rock Church, the Senate Square surrounded by the Lutheran Cathedral of Helsinki, the Senate, the University and Library of Helsinki, the Sibelius monument, the Olympic stadium, and the new Opera House.
The afternoon is at leisure.
Tonight, we enjoy our farewell dinner in the hotel.
