Visit the historical centre of Helsinki viewing the Presidential Palace, City Hall, the Parliament buildings, Finlandia Hall, the Opera House as well as the Kiasma Museum and the monument dedicated to Finland’s J.

An EXCHANGE PROGRAM would be a great prelude to your first tour CONCERT possibly in the Temppeliaukio Church famous for being hewn out of the rock (hence its more familiar name, ‘The Rock Church’).

We view Raekoja plats (Town Hall square), the town walls and towers (notably “Fat Margaret” and “Kiek in the Kök”) as well as the St. Olaf church tower. Estonian choral music has a unique following and an EXCHANGE CONCERT would be an ideal way to immerse you further in it. Perhaps enjoy a combined post concert meal with your new Estonian friends.
