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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sibelius Monument. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka (Katariina Seaside Park, Sapokka Water Garden, & more), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo). Pack the 3rd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
