With a varied history of control by foreign powers and independence, Helsinki has a rich material and cultural history. Your cruise to Helsinki wouldn’t be complete without a deeper look at some of that history.
There are many things to see in Helsinki. So, you’ll see Senate Square, which is the central square of Helsinki with some of the most famous architectural landmarks around the square. Among these are the oldest building in central Helsinki, Sederholm House, and the Helsinki Cathedral.
On Senate Square is also the Government Palace, the University of Helsinki’s central building, and the National Library of Finland. In the center of the square stands a statue of Alexander II.
The Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art is part of the Finnish National Gallery. It houses Finland’s largest collection of contemporary art by leading modern Finnish artists.
Finlandia Hall is an architectural masterpiece designed by famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. Made of granite and marble, so it stands out on the beautiful waterfront of Toolo Bay.
The Church of the Rock
The Church of the Rock is one of outstanding churches in Northern Europe. Also known as Temppeliaukio Church. It was designed by architects and brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen and built in 1969.
Most of the church was carved right into the rock. Thanks to the light ceiling, the church is also often used as a concert venue due to its outstanding acoustics.
