What are we going to do

Helsinki is a gem for architecture enthusiasts. It is difficult, if not possible, to find another urban space that houses a wide range of architectural styles like Helsinki; neoclassical, gothic revival, (largest collection of) Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, Nordic classicism, modernism, functionalism, and contemporary styles in a compact city centre. Different historical periods left their marks on Helsinki, however it is easy to miss these great works of world renowned architects, from Engel to Saarinen, from Aalto to Siren and Revell in ordinary city tours. Join me in a great architecture tour with a small group to visit and enjoy the architectural wonders Helsinki offers; National Library of Finland, Central Railway Station, new public library Oodi, Chapel of Silence, neighborhoods filled with Art Nouveau, The Rock Church, Finlandia Hall and more.
