Porvoo

Porvoo, one of Finland's oldest and prettiest towns, boasts cobbled streets, famous red-brick warehouses, and a charming river.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Salpa Line Museum and Church of Hollola. Let the collections at Radio and TV Museum and Directions Lahden historiallinen Museo capture your imagination. Explore Porvoo's surroundings by going to Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Main Building of Military School (in Hamina) and Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Linden Esplanade, &more). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Loviisan kirkko, admire the landmark architecture of Lahti City Hall, get to know the fascinating history of Castle Hill, and walk around Runeberg Park.

Helsinki

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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kansallisgalleria and Katajanokka. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Mannerheim Museum, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, and visit Ullanlinna.
