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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kallio Church and Ullanlinna. Museum-lovers will get to explore Heureka and Design Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Hame Castle (in Hameenlinna). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Market Square Kauppatori, stroll around Sibelius Monument, get great views at Olympic Stadium (Olympiastadion), and get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market.
