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.
Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church will appeal to history buffs. Helsinki Cathedral and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Kirkkonummen kirkko (in Kirkkonummi) and Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg). Pack the 2nd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
