City tour with Sauna Experience

(5 Hours)

Description

Among the most striking features of the Helsinki architecture are the largish areas built in a uniform style. The city thus has whole blocks and even districts representing Neoclassical, Art Nouveau, National Romantic, functional or modern architecture. The oldest area in Helsinki that has been preserved intact is the Senate Square. Reminiscent of St. Petersburg in its neoclassical style. In the 1970s Helsinki acquired some important new public buildings - e.g. the Finlandia Hall, the City Theatre, the new National Opera, the official residence of the Finnish President and the Temppeliaukio Church - which are now important landmarks on the Helsinki street scene. A city tour includes all essential sights in the city centre including the Sibelius Park with the Sibelius Monument, an unusual steel monument from 1967, commemorating the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Pay a visit to Temppeliaukio Church (The Church in the Rock), completed in 1969 and carved out of a solid rock and topped with a copper dome. Only the dome is visible from the outside. The pantheon-like interior is enhanced by the rugged granite walls and the copper-plated cupola. The excellent acoustics make this a favorite venue for concerts. Sauna bathing is an essential part of Finnish culture and national identity. There are only 5,4 million Finns but 3,3 million saunas. Public saunas used to be common in bigger cities but now that most new apartments have sauna of their own, public saunas have decreased dramatically in number. There are only a couple remaining. As a sense of community is becoming a more and more important part of new urban culture, many new public saunas are being planned. The sauna is open to the public and has separate locker rooms and showers for men and women – however the sauna rooms and other facilities are open to everyone. Please remember that appropriate swimwear must be worn in the shared sauna room. Towels and seat cover as well as soap and shampoo are included in the 2 hour sauna experience. Don’t forget your bathing costume.

Reviews

The tour to two castles was fabulous! WE enjoyed every part of this tour and the guide was very informative. Would go back to Copenhagen again for more time and definitely use Delta of Scandinavia.

Our tours with Delta of Scandinavia were very good. We had tours in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Both of our guides were very competent and knowledgeable. Plus they were both lovely women - spending touring time with them was a pleasure.

Delta of Scandinavia did an outstanding job for us for our trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. The guides and drivers for our two city tours were exceptionally good, the drivers that handled our many transfers were great (and very careful on the snowy roads), and the accommodations were excellent. The Aurora Chase in Tromso afforded a great opportunity to see the Northern Lights. The guides were great and helped us with camera settings to get photos of the Lights. Malangen Brygger Lodge was outstanding - food was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful to us senior travelers! Seeing the Lights fill the sky during a dogsled ride was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
