Free Walking Tour of Helsinki

Begin your guided walking tour of Helsinki at the steps to the imposing Neoclassical Cathedral. Located in the central Senate Square, the distinctive green-domed church overlooks the Government Palace, home to Finland's Prime Minister's office and other state departments.

Your free walking tour will continue to the Bank of Finland, before you reach one of Helsinki's most beautiful landmarks: the Uspenski Cathedral. Admire the striking contrasts between this dramatic red-brick Eastern Orthodox church with the white Lutheran Helsinki Cathedral you saw earlier. It is said to be one of the largest Orthodox churches in Western Europe.

After exploring the iconic religious site, continue your route to Market Square, a hub of activity in the daily lives of the Finnish capital's inhabitants. Learn all about their customs and traditions, as well as Helsinki's history, as you admire the different monuments of "The White City of the North".
