Things to do in Helsinki, Finland

  • Fortress of Suomenlinna
     Fortress of Suomenlinna Helsinki, Finland                                                       Suomenlinna is an inhabited sea fort that was constructed on six islands near the capital of Finland, Helsinki. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and quite popular with visitors from other countries and locals alike, that enjoy the gorgeous picnic site and the outstanding views that surround the islands. It was originally called Sveaborg (Fortress of Svea), in Swedish, or Viapori in Finnish, and renamed in 1918 for nationalistic and patriotic reasons to Suomenlinna. It is often called by its original name, depending upon which language is used. The Swedish crown began construction on the fort in 1748 to protect itself from Russian expansion, and the overall responsibility for the construction work was given to Augustin Ehrensvard. The initial plans were greatly influenced by the best military engineer of the period, Vauban and he used the star fort style of fortifications although he had to adapt it to a group of rocky islands off the coast of Helsinki. Besides this fort, there were others on the mainland that faced the sea and would catch any invaders in a terrible crossfire that would certainly cost them many ships and lives. The plan called for the stocking of munitions for the entire Finnish part of the Swedish army and Royal Swedish Navy at the fort, however, in the Finnish War, it did surrender to Russian forces on May 3, 1808, which allowed Russia to occupy Finland in 1809. The story and history of the fort from then on, as well as that of the city and nation is a very interesting and exciting read and should be enjoyed before going to the island to view all the marvelous architecture and relics still there. In 1973, the fort was turned over to civilian authorities and an independent government department was started to take care of the unusual complex. The name became somewhat of a problem, but after some discussion, the new one was kept for simplicity and today houses the Naval Academy of the Finnish Navy. It has grown into one of the most popular attractions in the city and a favorite picnic spot for the locals. The ferries that run to the islands can become very congested during the warm summer months and in 2009, a record 713,000 visitors came to enjoy its solitude and beauty.

  • Rock ChurchRock Church Helsinki, Finland
     The Temppeliaukio Church or Rock Church more commonly called, is a Lutheran church in the Toolo neighborhood of Helsinki, Finland, designed by brother architects, Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen that opened to the public in 1969. The Temple Square, or Temppeliaukio, was first chosen for the unique church during the 1930s, but the initial plans by J. S. Siren, second contest winner to design the architecture of the church was interrupted in the early stages by the advent of the Second World War in 1939. When the war was finished, the Soumalainen brothers won the contest in 1961, and because of economic reasons, their plans had to be scaled back and the inside of the church reduced by a quarter. Construction started in February, 1968 and the church was finished for consecration in September, 1969. The inside was excavated and built right into the rock, although it is showcased in natural light that filters through the glazed dome that is made entirely of copper wire. The acoustics are outstanding because of the uneven and unfinished rock surfaces, that are perfect for bouncing any audio sounds off them, but leaving the interior unfinished or exposed hadn't been in the original plans. Conductor Paavo Berglund spoke to the brothers about his past experiences and what the best acoustical environment was, and acoustical engineer Mauri Parjo began making the necessary requirements for the wall surfaces. The brothers found that they could realize the requirements by leaving the rock surfaces just as they were, which the two men had originally thought of but were afraid that it would be too radical for the judges to pick them. The wall behind the altar is a grandiose rock wall that had been divinely created by a retreating glacier. This church is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city with 500,000 people coming here to immerse themselves in the majestic quarters. This stone hewn church is found right in the heart of the city of Helsinki and is also a favorite of architecture and dignified beauty.

  • Seurasaari Open-Air Museum
    Antti Farmstead Seurasaari Open-Air Museum Helsinki, FinlandSeurasaari Open-Air Museum is located on the island of Seurasaari that is part of Helsinki, Finland, with numerous ancient wooden structures that were brought here to preserve and showcase for the locals and visiting tourists. The island is a thick forested area that is a favorite place to enjoy the solitude and the local beaches and the marvelous wildlife that thrives there. At Midsummer, a huge bonfire is lit on one of the smaller islands adjacent to Seurasaari that brings thousands of visitors for the annual celebration and unique atmosphere. The fire is always lit by a newly wed couple for good luck and a long and happy relationship. Many people come in boats to enjoy the lively event and the camaraderie that is readily available. The island contains one of only two nudist beaches in the city, and one of only three in the entire country, but is segregated for men and women, without any unisex beach available. The open-air museum was started in 1909 when the initial group of structures arrived that had been part of the Niemela Farm in Konginkangas, in central Finland. The idea came from the Skansen Open-Air Museum in Stockholm, Sweden and was encouraged by Axel Olai Heikel, an expert in vernacular architecture and ethnology. The majority of the buildings are from the 18th and 19th centuries, and constructed mainly of wood from agrarian settings. The oldest structure is the Karuna Church, built in 1686 and their goal has been to collect and preserve the oldest buildings in the nation from various provinces and area of the country to reflect the heritage of this great land. Today, there are 85 different structures set throughout the magnificent forests, but in recent years, those area that did have these old and often ancient structures have decided to keep them for themselves and showcase them in their regions. Many of them are log constructed, and wonderful examples of the early residences and other types of architecture that was prevalent during those periods of time. It is an exciting adventure for anyone, with the locals coming often to enjoy and benefit from the slower pace of living and vacationing.

  • Presidential Palace Helsinki
    Presidential Palace Helsinki, FinlandThe Presidential Palace is located in Helsinki, Finland and is one of the official places for the President of Finland to live while he is in office and sits on the northern side of the city, in the district called Esplanadi, that looks out over Market Square on the front side, and the back sits next to the sea, allowing beautiful views from both sides of the palace. In the early years of the 19th century, a salt storehouse sat on the property, until Johan Henrik Heidenstrauch, one of the city's richest merchants, bought the property and began building this marvelous residence from 1816 to 1820, designed by Pehr Granstedt. The Heidenstrauch House looked more like a palace that a wealthy merchant's home, and in 1837, it did become a palace when it was bought for 170,000 ruobles and then converted into a home for the Governor-General of Finland. Later, Nicolas I decided that it should be used as the official residence of the Tsar of Russia/Grand Duke of Finland in Helsinki, in which case, it did become the Imperial Palace of Helsinki. As time continued to pass, the palace was used less and less, until WWI when it had to be used for the Helsinki Temporary Military Hospital during 1915, and finally in the February Revolution of 1917, the palace stopped being a military hospital and became the property of the Senate. When the new constitution was ratified in 1919, the former palace became the official residence of the President and repairs and changes made in record time. The exquisite furnishings and art works that had been stored in the National Museum and the Ateneum Art Museum were returned and also supplemented, staying the residence of the President. During 1938, Martti Valikangas would modernize the palace and make it more suitable to become the official residence; which it has been, except the presidencies of Ryti, Mannerheim and Kekkonen, who preferred living at Tamminiemi; until 1993. Then, a new residence was constructed, called Mantyniemi and the president moved in there. There have been many distinguished visitors to the palace over the years, including; Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, the Shah of Iran, Juan Carlos I of Spain, Olav V of Norway, Emperor Akihito of Japan, Elizabeth II of Great Britain, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush; as well as Pope John Paul II, Conan O'Brien, Nikita Khrushchev, Horst Kohler, Boris Yeltsin, and Vladimir Putin.

In 1940, he would donate the beautiful mansion to the state so that it could become the Presidential residence, and although Ryti and Mannerheim lived there during their administrations, it was Kekkonen who lived here for thirty years so that he is associated with this unique villa by the sea.

Therefore, they have become involved in promoting numerous temporary exhibits that encourage all people to visit and learn more about a particular subject or focus, hoping to entice those visitors to enjoy all of the collections and exhibits that are available to them. That mean that their displays must showcase cultural diversity in every aspect of the arts and collections fields so that those visiting will come more often and bring family members and friends to commit to a program that involves everyone in the program and that benefits them as well, not just those that are prone to certain artists, or works or collections, but to enjoy the various programs and collections that have brought them here in the first place.
