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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Linnanmaki Amusement Park. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo, approximately 50 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, appreciate the history behind Sibelius Monument, and get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori.
