Helsinki, the southern capital of Finland, is a city of architectural marvels. For travellers visiting, there are sights aplenty to see in this eminently Instagram-able city.
Temppeliaukio Church (also known as Rock Church) is among the most popular sites to visit in the city, and it’s not hard to see why. The church was built out of natural rock and this is a feature retained with the internal design. Still on the subject of churches, the brilliant white Helsinki Cathedral is more than 100 years old, and towers over the city. It’s a sight well worth visiting.
Switching to culture, the Ateneum Art Museum is a must-visit. Thousands upon thousands of works of art are collected in a series of galleries. For those who need a time out after all the exploring, the Kamppi Chapel of Silence is an imposing rounded chapel, designed for visitors to sit in silence and enjoy the peace of slowing down inside the middle of a busy city.
