Inside Helsinki Walk
The splendid interiors in Helsinki provide an insight into a whole new world. All enthusiasts may join the Inside Helsinki Walk arranged every day from mid June till the end of August in summer 2012.
The splendid interiors in Helsinki provide an insight into a whole new world that tells the story of how Classical culture was cherished, in an increasingly affluent industrial city of the late 19th century, revealing the comprehensive approach of Nordic Modernism as something that adds beauty to day-to-day life. This walking tour takes you for a close-up view of several culturally and historically significant public spaces and interiors, from the Helsinki University Library to the handsome atrium of the Stock Exchange building, from a glitzy Art Deco cafe to the finest Minimalist WC facilities in town. Your guide, who has an in-depth knowledge of culture, will elaborate on the historical events and the goals of the architects and artists featured in the tour.
