Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Step out of the city life by going to Aurinkolahti Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hietaranta Beach. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Porvoo to see Porvoo Old Town about 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, and expand your understanding of the military at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
