The walking tour introduces us to the life of artist Ellen Thesleff and her neighbourhood around Bulevardi and Esplanadi. What did Helsinki look and feel like when Thesleff moved to the city as a young girl in the 1880s? How about later when Thesleff had become a cosmopolitan artist? The tour takes about 90 minutes and ends in Kluuvi at Fazer’s café – Karl Fazer’s confectionery store and café was one of Ellen Thesleff’s favourite places in Helsinki. After the tour it is possible to have a chat with the guide over a cup of tea. The guide has a sound amplifier on the tour.
