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 Walking tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Heureka (in Vantaa), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, Porvoo Old Town, & more). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, steep yourself in history at The Aalto House, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).
