This vibrant city is the capital of the Republic of Finland. Helsinki's city centre combines traditional Finnish architecture with modern low-rise buildings, as well as offering well-kept public gardens and parks.
Our new escorted journey travels by rail, sea and road to reveal the showcase cities of Finland, Russia and Estonia.
From the ‘design capital of the world’, Helsinki, to the artistic treasures of St Petersburg and the country’s rich folklore, you’ll get a flavour of three of the Baltic’s most beautiful cities.
An included walking tour this morning reveals visual highlights of this beautiful city, including the watch-towers and cobbled streets of the Upper Town, the Gothic-style Dome Cathedral and the red-gabled roofs of the UNESCO-protected Lower Town.
You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the colourful market held near the Dominican convent before returning to your hotel.
