Sights & art museums

The most popular sights in Helsinki are Suomenlinna , a small island and residential area a ferry ride from the center, the Helsinki Cathedral (pictured), the rock-cut church in Temppelinaukio, and the Kauppatori bursting with food and stalls.

For art lovers, we recommend Kiasma, the museum of modern art, and the National Gallery’s extensive collection of Finnish and world-famous art presented in the Ateneum. For lovers of experimental art, we suggest Amos Rex, whose changing collections are full of new perspectives.

Things to do for the whole family

Among the favorites of families with children are definitely the Linnanmäki amusement park, whose equipment and restaurants can be enjoyed even by the elders of the family, or the Korkeasaari zoo , where you can witness e.g. lion’s eating moment.

Linnanmäki, or “lints”, wristbands are on sale at VALO’s reception.

In Helsinki, nature is also close by. There are several green parks in the city , such as Helsinki Keskuspuisto, a wooded green area over 10 kilometers long, which is located right next to VALO.
