From marketplace and market hall to the Suomenlinna Island

The tour will take us trough the market square, where we will taste typical Finnish berries in form of jam. In the market hall, we will have a small taste of a few more Finnish delicacies, like reindeer meat and ”leipäjuusto”, the typical Finnish squeaky cheese/bread cheese.

Vino Tours and more

We will then pass the old market quarter and hear stories about the old restaurants, coffee places and alcohol smugglers of the 18th and 19th century. At the Senate’s square we will talk about the different phases of the Finnish history in Helsinki and take a look at the centre of the young capital of Finland in the 19th century. 
On our way back to the market square, we will see the ice breakers now on holiday (summer time), the Uspenski cathedral, and the Presidential palace and will then take the ferry to the Suomenlinna islands. As arrived on the islands, we will visit a typical Finnish restaurant built inside of an old Russian barrack, where we will taste some more Finnish delicacies and before returning back to the mainland, we will take a little walk on the islands. End of the tour.
