I have a bachelor degree from Faculty of Architecture, Department of City Planning. I am currently a PhD student in Urban Studies/Social Policy program 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 started to arrange walking tours.

Description

Helsinki is a gem for architecture enthusiasts. It is difficult, if not possible, to find another urban space that houses a wide range of architectural styles like Helsinki; neoclassical, gothic revival, (largest collection of) 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. Join us in a great architecture tour with a small group to visit and enjoy the architectural wonders Helsinki offers, such as the National Library of Finland, Central Railway Station, new public library Oodi, Chapel of Silence, Kiasma modern art museum, The Rock Church, Finlandia Hall and more.

The city tour was really enjoyable and well planned. Though the weather was really bad, Emek did his best to bring us around and introduce a lot of things to us. Certainly worth our time!
Very entertaining city tour
for Emek’s tour (Tour Helsinki with a City Planner)
We really enjoyed the tour with Emek as he gave us an interesting overview about the most important sights and the history of the city. We enjoyed the funny story about the finnish president and the stop at the café in particular! Thanks again to Emek!
