  • A religious place very different. Absolutely "clean", inspires respect and introspection. It was worth getting to know.

  • Amazing object inside, simple but impressive in rounded walls, completely in wood, acoustic, and beautiful silence. Take a short rest inside from a hard day sightseeing.  more »
  • There is a small chapel where you can feel the stillness. However, circulation of special visit take you hard doesn't fit.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
