Best places to visit in Finland

  • Helsinki: The Market Square, or Kauppatori, is the focal point of the city, where you can walk through a dizzying array of market stalls selling everything from local delicacies to tourist souvenirs. To experience the historic Finnish lifestyle you can visit Seurasaari Open-Air Museum and one of the other main landmarks is the Sibelius Monument and Park with its massive wind-driven organ pipes.  
  • Espoo: The second-largest city in Finland, here you can visit the Haltia Finnish Nature Centre, Nuukso National Park and the Hanaholmen Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre. The Pentala Archipelago Museum also showcases the natural and human settlement history in the area. Another of the city’s main landmarks worth seeing is the Espoo Cathedral.  
  • Tampere: this is something of a museum city, with the main ones in the Vapriikki complex. They include the Doll Museum, the Media Museum and the Mineral Museum. For panoramic views over the city, you can take the lift to the top of the Pyynikki Observation Tower, and the old Tampere Cathedral is an interesting blend of Art Nouveau and Nordic romantic-style architecture.  

Summer 2021 in Finland

Hire a car in Finland will allow you to explore much more of the country in summer. The Suomenlinna Fortress is one of the most important landmarks in Helsinki, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other important landmarks here include Uspensky Orthodox Cathedral and the massive Lutheran cathedral. This is also a good time to explore the towns in the Åland Archipelago to experience the country’s maritime history.

Well organized rental station, however the signs in the car park to pick uo the rental cars could be improved to be better guided when picking up the car.

Aleksei A.

I've been using Sixt for over a year (4-5 times already, not only from Kalasatama branch). Loved it from the very beginning. First of all loved it because it's the only car rental service that does not require Credit card - Debit card is just enough for them.

Never had any issues neither with cars, nor with personal.
