The tour bus recommends board the Kauppatori ferry and in a few minutes you'll be in one of Scandinavia's most beautiful man-made locations, if not the world. Suomenlinna is a massive maritime fortification, spread over seven islands. A tiny baroque settlement is still home to 1000 residents, despite the star-shaped walls and weapons positions.

This port area is one of the city's epicenters of life and trade, and a real Helsinki landmark as a whole. Our bus company recommends October is the best time of year to visit the square.
3. Helsinki Cathedral

4. The Chapel of Silence
Kamppi Chapel of Silence is a place of quietness in the heart of the lively city center of Helsinki. The chapel is tiny but warm and quiet, and the thick wooden walls, made of Scandinavian spruce, reflect the depth of silence inside.
5. Seurasaari Island
Few kilometres north of the city center are an open-air museum that has put together a collection of typical Finnish buildings from around the country.

Hire a bus with driver in our bus company and take a few minutes drive to Island.
Known to locals as the "Espa," this is a green space finger right in the middle of the city, a spot where visitors and residents of Helsinki come for picnics, recreation and summer entertainment. Our chartered bus company recommends come in July for Jazz-Espa, a month-long jazz festival, or in June for the Marimekko Fashion Show.
A swell pub and a delicious restaurant with a daring mix of rock fusion and contemporary jazz music, the history of Juttutupa dates back to 1884, making it one of the oldest joints in the region.
