Day 5 – Travel to Helsinki
Morning Allegro High Speed train to Helsinki. All passport and customs formalities are handled from our seats, making this by far the easiest way to exit Russia and enter Finland.
Afternoon tour with private guide of Helsinki’s Design District, home to over 200 shops, galleries, clothing boutiques and restaurants.
Afterwards, you will be welcomed into Juhani Lemmeti’s home and gallery, to view his personal collection of Finnish design by Aalto, Saarinen and Tapiovaara to name a few. These pieces blend seamlessly with his contemporary art collection. Mr. Lemmeti developed Artek 2nd Cycle recreating the vintage designs of Aalto and others.
