An excellent way to get acquainted with any historic city is on foot. With iTouch© audio players and a detailed map, this program offers an easy self-guided walking tour of Helsinki. Your Discovery Walk through Helsinki will not only cover more than 30 points of interest but also take you through some of the less traveled streets where you'll get a true flavor of the city, its architecture, its culture and its people.
The player is yours and yours alone, so you can spend as much time as you'd like, or as little, at each spot. And since there are no schedules to keep but your own, you're free to have a meal, take a break for refreshments, or spend time shopping whenever you want. And as you explore Helsinki's historic sites and beautiful views at your own pace, the player's private earpiece allows you to listen to all of the facts and history of this memorable city and its people. Follow the suggested route or set out on your own adventure, moving about the city with ease thanks to your customized map and audio directions.
Simply consult the customized map to find each location and then go to the indicated number on the player for a detailed description of the site and its history. Your exploration of Helsinki is limited only by your personal wishes. From the beauty of Esplanade Park, to the grandeur of Senate Square, the exquisite interior of the Uspenski Cathedral, the wealth of masterpieces at the Anteneum Art Museum and the unique interior of the Stone Church, your stroll through Helsinki will be the highlight of your visit to this wonderfully historic city.
