Why Go on a Tour of Helsinki

If you haven't been to Helsinki in Finland, we bet you haven't seen other parts of the country too, as no journey to this breathtaking destination can be complete without at least a Helsinki walking tour.

You probably have heard that Denmark is the happiest country in the world, well, Finland has something to be proud of too: its capital is called the world's most honest city! The moral virtue of Helsinki citizens was tested when 12 wallets were hidden around the city, and 11 out of them were returned to the owners.

You'll feel nothing less than safe when exploring the city. When it comes to touring the Finnish capital, a couple of landmarks should inevitably be on the top of your itinerary. First of all, the Helsinki Cathedral with its green dome is the first thing you see when researching the city and it truly deserves the recognition.

The church, located in the heart of the center, is one of the most visited sights in Helsinki all year-round. During the festive period, there is a small Christmas market and a decorated tree in front of it, making the visit even more magical. Second on your list should be the Helsinki Market Square.

Described as "an absolute must go place in Helsinki" by tourists, the square offers not only many great eateries for an authentic Finnish lunch break but also magical views of the harbor as it borders the Baltic Sea. There is a lot more to discover during your trip to Finland and its capital. Don't delay and browse the programs below to finally cross the Honest City from your travel bucket list.
