The Tsar´s Helsinki Walking Tour dives into the first hundred years of building Helsinki into the capital of Finland and its central monuments. The heart of the capital of autonomous Finland developed around the Senate Square. Influences were searched for from Saint Petersburg and Berlin’s Neoclassicism in which symmetry, column systems and other architectural methods inherited from the Classical Period and the Renaissance played a significant part. In the late 19th century, a smaller square of public buildings formed by the Bank of Finland, the House of the Estates and the National Archives of Finland was created adjacent to the Senate Square. It also reflected the ideals of the Renaissance but with a more patriotic nature. The walking tour starts from the Helsinki City Museum, Aleksanterinkatu 16, and ends in the park of the House of Estates.

No age limit, but recommended for children over the age of 10
