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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Kansallisgalleria and Cathedral of Porvoo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Porvoo to see Porvoo Old Town about 50 minutes away. Pack the 13th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, and shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori.
