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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Lahti (Apulandia & Motorcycle Museum of Finland), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Kotka Church, &more). 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 don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market.
