This morning you will arrive into Helsinki, and after disembarkation and immigration your tour comes to an end. Helsinki, resting on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, a branch of the Baltic Sea, is both historic and modern. In contrast to the cityâ€™s 450 years of history, historic architecture and unique Finnish design, the beauty of the city blends seamlessly with high-tech achievements. It is here where old traditions mix with the latest contemporary trends.
Helsinkiâ€™s rhythm is laid back yet at the same time refreshingly active in terms of both the number and quality of restaurants and nightclubs as well as things to see and do. In Helsinki, everything is nearby, itâ€™s a pocket-sized metropolis easily explored on foot. Today you could opt to visit the Helsinki Cathedral with its rich architecture designed by Carl Ludvig Engel in neoclassical style, Suomenlinna Fortress with its old cannon and submarines, market stores and arty stalls - or perhaps have a coffee at Market Square followed by a scoop of ice cream at Esplanade park.
