Finland is a simply fabulous country, full of amazing sights, brimming with fascinating culture and boasting a truly inspiring capital city in the form of Helsinki.

Take a look at our range of holidays. For more guidance check out our Finnish Holiday Ideas or call our advisers on 0333 800 2033.

Helsinki Treasures

Lovers of museums and galleries will be spoiled for choice on our Finland City Breaks. The Ateneum Art Museum, for starters, houses the country’s largest art collection – with more than 20,000 works dating from the 1750s to the 1950s. For something a little more modern, The Museum of Contemporary Art fits the bill. Here you’ll find collections of modern art from Nordic and Baltic countries as well as Russia. The National Museum of Finland charts Finnish history from prehistoric times to the present day and for an insight into social history, the Seurasaari Open-Air Museum is a must.

Addictive Architecture and Outdoor Spaces

Amazing architecture abounds on our Finland City Breaks

Known by many as the symbol of the city, Helsinki Cathedral – designed by Carl Ludwig Engel – has adorned Helsinki’s skyline since 1852 and is a must on any Finland City Breaks schedule. Also worth a look is the amazing Sibelius monument, unveiled in 1967; the Olympic Stadium, which hosted the games in 1952 and the 200 seat Parliament building – a fabulous example of 1920s Classicism.

You’re sure to enjoy exploring Helsinki on foot on our Finland City Breaks. During your time here make sure you visit Senate Square to discover the fabulous Neo-classical architecture and take time out to pop over to Esplanade Park for a taste of serenity in the midst of the city.

City Explorer

Our Finland City Breaks offer the chance to combine an exploration of Helsinki with visits to a host of other Baltic capitals.

Opt for our Baltic Capitals Specialist Cruise and explore Stockholm and Tallinn too. The wonderful island-based capital of Stockholm is a magical destination connected by 57 bridges. Particularly popular here is the old town area of Gamla Stan. Browse its fabulous cobbled streets, admire its historical buildings and indulge in a spot of people watching at one of its pavement cafes. Tallinn, in Estonia, is another historical hotspot. This UNESCO World Heritage site boasts medieval streets and a host of fascinating landmarks including Kadriorg Palace, the city cathedral and Freedom Square. Take time to discover its beauty when you travel here on one of our Finland City Breaks.

If you want to extend your time away on our Finland City Breaks, take our seven day UNESCO Baltic Capitals cruise and, as well as Helsinki, Stockholm and Tallinn, you’ll also spend time in beautiful Riga. This Latvian gem is brimming with historical interest thanks to its unique combination of Art Nouveau, medieval and traditional wooden architecture, and is certainly well worth a visit.
