Free admission

For thousands of commuters, Helsinki’s Central Railway Station is the main traffic hub from which buses, the metro and numerous local and long distance trains arrive and depart. In fact, with roughly 200,000 daily visitors, it is Finland’s most visited structure. The building also happens to be one of the landmarks of the city and looks back on over 100 years of history. Designed in 1909 by Eliel Saarinen and opened in 1919, the Railway Station’s most distinctive features are the big clock tower and the two towering figures of two heavily muscled, half-naked men holding big globes of light.

Another notable feature is the red Finnish granite that was used to clad the façades of the Central Railway Station. The granite originated in Hanko, the southernmost region of Finland and is believed to be over 400 million years old. A more curious addition to the station, which is also unique in the world, is the presidential lounge. It was originally supposed to be reserved for the private use of the Emperor of Russia, but since Finland’s independence, the waiting area has been dedicated to the sole use of the Finnish President and his guests.

Join this small-group walking tour to explore Helsinki, the capital of the country that consumes most coffee, has a world-famous education model and crazy popular karaoke scene. I will be happy to answer your questions about our way of life and cultural habits. I was born and raised here, and I want you to get a real feeling of Helsinki, not just the touristic one. You'll learn about Finland's politics, past and present. We'll also discuss the Finnish language, is it really that difficult to learn? On Market Square, we'll talk about Finnish gastronomy and see the largest Orthodox Cathedral in Northern Europe. By the end, we'll see the award-winning library Oodi. You'll get to feel the unique Helsinki state of mind and get a clear idea of our quite peculiar culture. Why is a sauna so important for us? What is the "Unicorn Block" of Helsinki? Why is there a statue of a Russian Czar in the most famous square of Helsinki? Let's discover how unique Helsinki really is!
