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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mannerheim Museum and Beach Mansikkalahti. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kansallisgalleria and Katajanokka. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Kotka Church, &more), Lahti (Apulandia & Motorcycle Museum of Finland) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Johannes Church, see the interesting displays at Vantaa Art Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market.
