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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sapokka Water Garden. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Herb Garden Redoubt & Maritime Centre Vellamo), Turku (Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo, Turku Castle, &more) and Tampere (Sarkanniemi Theme Park, Tampereen Tuomiokirkko, &more). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the striking landscape of Nuuksio National Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and walk around Kaivopuisto.
