Short trip to Helsinki and surroundings

On a trip to discover Helsinki, there is nothing better than starting from Senate Square, where you will be greeted by the imposing statue of Tsar Alexander II. Admire the Cathedral, so beautiful and bright in its white architecture, and discover the particular Temppeliaukio, also known as the Church in the Rock, since located inside a granite hill. Taste typical dishes - salmon first and foremost! - among the stalls of the Market Square and set sail to reach the Fortress of Suomenlinna, the castle on the sea where verdant nature grows. And for a true Finnish experience, discover the many districts of the city, from Punavuori to Ullanlinna.
