Into oza kuyenza

Helsinki is a gem for architecture enthusiasts. It is difficult to find another urban space that houses a wide range of architectural styles like Helsinki; neoclassical, gothic revival, Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, Nordic classicism, modernism, functionalism, and contemporary styles in a compact city centre. Different historical periods left their marks on Helsinki, however it is easy to miss these great works of world renowned architects (from Engel to Saarinen, from Aalto to Siren and Revell) in ordinary city tours. We will start with the old center of the city, visiting Helsinki Cathedral and National Library of Finland designed by Engel, the most influential architect in Helsinki in the first half of 19th century. We will then visit 3 important works of world famous architect Alvar Aalto (Stora Enso HQ, Academic Bookstore and Rautatalo). We will continue with Eliel Saarinen's Central Railway station. On our way, we will stop by two important libraries, KaisaTalo (Anttinen Oiva) and Oodi (ALA) and I'll explain the unique library culture in Finland. Strolling through important buildings such as the Music Hall (LPR), Kiasma (Holl), Finlandia Hall (Aalto), National Museum of Finland (Saarinen), we will make up our way to The Rock Church (Suomalainen). On our return to downtown, we will head to The Glass Palace (Revell), Amos Rex (JKMM) and Chapel of Silence (K2S).
Other things to note
We will walk around 6 km, please come with comfortable walking shoes, extra layers for warmth and umbrella for rainy days.

I have B.A. and M.A. from Faculty of Architecture, Department of City Planning (METU, Ankara, 2001). I have worked as a city planner and urban designer in public and private sectors. I'm currently a PhD student (Urban Studies) and part-time lecturer in University of Helsinki. I wanted to combine my love for Helsinki with my knowledge and research about the history, culture and architecture of this beautiful city, and share it with a wider audience, so I became an authorised Helsinki guide!

Emek is a nice person to be with. He is a professional in city building, and have lots of knowledge. He was very flexible, and eager to meet my personal preferences. I saw a lot of helsinki buildings, some of them - both inside and out. It was a great experience for me

Couldn’t have asked for a better tour! Emek is super knowledgeable and next time I go to Helsinki I will definitely book him again for another tour! So much to see in Helsinki and Emek knows the hidden spots and how to get to them, as they are not easy to find! Believe me! Thank you Emek!!!!

Emek is a very knowledgeable guide who clearly loves the city that he now calls home. It was great to travel through time by foot and through architecture from the Russian Empire to Finnish national identity to the modern era to contemporary interventions. Even places I’d walked through before took on new meaning as I learned more about their history.

Very nice architecture tour. Our family was the only one and Emek adapted the tour to whatever questions we had. He really knows a lot about architecture in Helsinki, as well as history and current affairs happening. Really recommened!

I can highly recommend Emek. He is an expert in architecture - I was interested in Jugendstil, and Emek adapted his tour to my interest. I was the only guest, it was easy to socialize with Emek, and we had a great time together. I learned a lot of Finnish history, and I really enjoyed every minute.

Emek knows his subject well and has a ton of anecdotes to tell about architecture, but also about Finnish culture and history. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it. Adapting the program to what I had already visited and what I was more interested in was a very nice touch.
