Shore Excursion: Panoramic Helsinki Highlights and Porvoo Old Town

7 reviews
Without a car, sightseeing in the Finnish countryside can pose a challenge. This shore excursion from Helsinki takes care of transportation from your cruise port, through picturesque rural areas, and back again, stopping at top sights such as the 1952 Olympic Stadium, the historic town of Porvoo, and the Rock Church along the way.

Helsinki University Library has four campus libraries: the Main Library in the Kaisa House, Kumpula, Meilahti and Viikki Campus Libraries. The Kaisa House is located in Kaisaniemi and it represents state-of-the-art library architecture. The building is an 11-story red brick construction which is well engaged in the cityscape. The large arched windows show the spectacular views of the townscape from inside the building.

So fantastic is this library that it’s probably worthwhile to take a detour from any near by cities such as Oslo or Copenhagen. If you can find a tour it would be worthwhile as this library contains so many amazing highlights that you might miss, such as a machine oriented are where you can actually print and bind your own book, a lively cafe, a children’s play area and an amazing ‘rest room’.
