Helsinki ©
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.
Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Maritime Centre Vellamo capture your imagination. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Heureka (in Vantaa), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Ruotsinpyhtaa (Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa & Stromforsin Ruukki). Spend the 14th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), wander the streets of Katajanokka, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church.
