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.
Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Hakaniemi Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Riverside Park & Santalahti Nature Trail). There's much more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, head outdoors with King's Road, stop by Taiga Colors, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
