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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stromforsin ruukki and Spas & Wellness. Your inner history buff will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Riimikko & Porvoo Old Town) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Linden Esplanade). The adventure continues: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, and explore the wide array of goods at Stockmann's Department Store.
