The capital of Finland is beautiful at any time of the year. Helsinki is a city where rocks and waterfalls are a familiar part of the landscape. And there are a lot of interesting things in this city.
Open Air Museum on Seurassaari Island. The museum is an ordinary Finnish village. About a hundred wooden houses, farms, churches, mills, stables, sheds. But the most interesting thing is that what is collected here was brought from all over Finland! You can go into all buildings and see the household items of Finnish peasants. And in the wooden church of the museum, wedding ceremonies are still held. You can visit the museum for the whole day. Here you can find a beach, cafes, barbecue areas and a park with tame squirrels.
Senate square. The peculiarity of this square is Alexander II. More precisely, a monument to Alexander II, who gave the Finns autonomy. In addition, the square is dominated by the Cathedral and 18th century mansions. Straight piece of Russia in Finland.
Train Station. The station is an architectural monument made in the Art Nouveau style. The Atlanteans standing at the central entrance are especially attractive. The station is beautiful for its details both from the outside and from the inside.
Temppeliaukio Church. This Lutheran church was built in an interesting way right in the rock. It looks original and looks like a UFO saucer. Organ music concerts are often held in this church, and they say it very, very beautifully. Temppeliaukio has one of the best acoustics in the world.
Suomenlinann sea fortress. The fortress was built by the Swedes, but the Finns still got it. The naval fortress is located on six islands and was one of the bases of the Russian Baltic fleet. On the islands you can see the huge Vesikko submarine, barracks, bastions, docks and forts. Everything was kept in very good condition.
Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA. This museum exhibits avant-garde art, as well as events dedicated to contemporary dance, theater, cinema. Interesting creative meetings and master classes are often held here. The museum building itself is also interesting: large spaces and soft lines give a feeling of freedom. The Museum of Modern Art is not at all like a museum in our understanding of the word.
Sea Life Marine Center. Walking along a 10-meter glass tunnel, you need to be ready to meet sharks, jellyfish, rays and other marine fish and reptiles. The most interesting thing in the center is animal feeding. Especially large numbers of spectators gather when feeding sharks and piranhas. Apparently our people love the thrill.
Tower of the Olympic Stadium. Although the tower itself is nothing original, it offers a breathtaking view of the city and the Gulf of Finland. Therefore, it is simply impossible to leave this attraction without attention!
