Helsinki

Helsinki ©
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.
Get some historical perspective at Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Stromforsin ruukki are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stora Herro Island (in Espoo), Porvoo (Willatar, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
