Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Cathedral of Porvoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Heureka (in Vantaa), Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, Porvoo Old Town, &more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: walk around Kaivopuisto, admire the striking features of The National Library of Finland, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and steep yourself in history at The Aalto House.
