Home > Tours in Helsinki > Jewish Sites Tour

First Jews cames to Finland in the end of 18th century as traders and merchants from other countries in Europe. Jewish community cannot be compared in terms of number with communities in many other European countries, at any point of history. However it does not mean that there is no sign of their presence today in Finland. Today there are approx 1500 Jews living in Finland including approx 1200 who live in Helsinki. In 1930s Finland was home to over 2000 Jews and over 200 of them fought in the Finnish Army during the Winter War of 1939-1940 against Russian Soviets.

We can show you all sites in Helsinki related with Jewish history in Finland. During our tour we can take you to the impressive Synagogue and Jewish Community Center, located right next to the Synagogue. You can also see the Hietaniemi cemetery complex where there are two Jewish Cemeteries: Old Jewish Cemetery (closed) and New Jewish Cemetery which is still in use by the local community and has a large ceremonial hall.

We can also organize private city tour which will combine Jewish heritage sites of Helsinki with standard city tour program and adjust duration time of the tour to your needs and expectations. Tour can be conducted with the use of private transportation or with the use of public transportation to reduce the price.
