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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kaivopuisto.

There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, and get lost in a book at The National Library of Finland.

To plan Helsinki vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
