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.

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!
