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.
Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna capture your imagination. Popular historic sites such as Stromforsin ruukki and Helsinki Cathedral are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and examine the collection at Design Museum.
