Description:

Your guide will pick you up at the port and take you for a drive towards the city center of Helsinki. You will see Helsinki Cathedral at the Senate Square, drive by the University of Helsinki , Presidential Palace, Market square, Finlandia Hall, the National Museum, Helsinki central station and other must-sees of the city. During this panoramic vehicle tour you will visit the Rock Church and walk around the unusual Sibelius monument. Both are considered the top highlights of Helsinki. The Rock Church is a popular place for concerts —it is carved out of solid rock and roofed with a copper dome, which creates a beautiful acoustic effect. It’s also often booked for wedding ceremonies. Next we invite you to take a stroll along Esplanade boulevard, the main shopping street, favourite among locals. Then we set off towards the medieval Porvoo.

A 30-mile picturesque drive through countryside will get you to the second oldest city in Finland that keeps its enchanting atmosphere and medieval outlook. Take a walk through narrow streets of the old town and learn about its history. Red-coloured store houses at the river and Porvoo Cathedral still remind us about the golden age of Porvoo — it was founded almost 800 years ago and served as a local trading center. This town is famous for a Brunberg chocolate shop that attracts all chocolate lovers around. This small town has an attractive shopping area with a great variety of original Finnish art, candles, sweets, designer clothes etc. You will have some free time to look around and buy some souvenirs or enjoy a quick coffee break in a local family café before heading back to the port.
