Top To See in Helsinki

Suomenlinna

The fortified island of Suomenlinna is a part of Helsinki. It seems remote, but is, in fact, easy to reach by a 20-minute ferry ride. The fortress of Sveaborg (Swedish Castle) dominates the island.

Market Square

The Market Square (Kauppatori) is the main planned and paved square in central Helsinki. It is one of the best-known outdoor markets in northern Europe. Bordering the Baltic Sea, at the eastern end of the Esplanadi, it is full of stands selling Finnish foods, flowers, and tourist souvenirs.

Temppeliaukio Church

North of the Hietaniemi area along Fredrikinkatu, is Helsinki's Rock Church, designed by Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen in the late 1960s. The underground interior of the church was carved out of and built directly into the ancient solid rock of the Helsinki peninsula.

Visit Turku

Turku Castle

One of Finland's most prized pieces of national heritage, Turku Castle took shape in the late-1200s during Finland’s Swedish period.

Flowpark

Blending with the woodland are a variety of swings, rope bridges, monkey bars, lane jumps and cable slides.

Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art

Active throughout the mid-20th century, Wäinö Aaltonen was one of the country’s great sculptors, who, like Jean Sibelius, helped form an idea of Finnish modern culture after independence.
