In Helsinki, the sea is an essential part everyday life and the sea is surrounded by the city on three sides. Join us for a tour that presents some of the best features of maritime Helsinki and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the daughter of the Baltic Sea! The program takes place from 10.00-17.00 and includes: Suomenlinna Sea Fortress The crown jewel of the Helsinki archipelago is Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is open year round. The fortress islands offer lots to see and do for visitors of all ages: bastion walls, cannons, tunnels, museums, cafĂŠs and restaurants. Allas Urban Outdoor Pool A new outdoor sea pool complex opening by the legendary Helsinki Market Square will bring joy to locals and travelers alike. Once the area is completed, it will offer swimming and sauna possibility all year round as well as all kinds of fun activities. Pop up events will take place already in summer 2014! Another addition to the area will be an observation wheel which offers a spectacular sea view. Culture Sauna Maritime Helsinki offers a unique urban sauna experience. Part of the official World Design Capital 2012 program, Culture Sauna is a new urban, contemporary Finnish public sauna on the Helsinki waterfront. Traditional sailing boats Helsinki is the home port for many traditional sailing ships. What better way to feel the atmosphere of maritime Helsinki than on the deck of a spectacular sailing boat! Program will be updated and changes are possible.
