You can start your tour of Helsinki by visiting the most well-known sight of the city, the striking Helsinki Cathedral.

Art enthusiasts will love the remarkable Amos Rex Art Museum housing a fantastic collection of 20th-century art. And the museum itself is an impressive sight to behold! Built under the Lasipalatsi Plaza, the museum's aboveground part looks like the giant bubbles, emerging from the ground.

The Temppeliaukion Rock Church is another great place to add to your "What to See in Helsinki" list. Carved out of the solid rock, the interiors of this unique place are spectacular, especially when the church is bathing in the natural sunlight coming from the skylight in the roof. What is more, the acoustics there is incredible thanks to the exposed walls, and if you have a chance to attend a concert at the Rock Church, you don't want to miss it.

And you can rest assured that regardless of what you choose to explore during your Helsinki tour, it's impossible not to fall in love with this incredible city. You will definitely want to come there again! So don't hurry to see everything at once, leave something for your next visit.
