For us today, a Sightseeing Tour by Bus.
Helsinki Panorama Sightseeing Audio Tour gives an introduction to the main sights in 12 languages over one hour and forty-five minutes.
HELSINKI CATHEDRAL AND SENATE SQUARE (unofficially the symbol of Helsinki). It is an evangelical Lutheran Church and was built from 1830 – 1852.
It is very distinctive with its white color and the tall green central dome surrounded by four smaller ones.
It is one of the world’s largest Lutheran Churches.
Neoclassical architecture is outstanding in the buildings and the surroundings of the Senate Square which makes up the oldest section of the city’s centre. It is called Senaatintori in Finnish and Senatstorget in Swedish.
The Sibelius Monument is in Sibelius Park in the Taka-Töölö district. It was designed by Eila Hiltunen to allow interaction with the design and create sounds and echoes in the pipes. Unveiled in 1967.
(It never ceases to amaze me that some tourists have to have their photo taken at every point of interest.)
