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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Porvoo (Porvoo Swimming Pool, Porvoo Museum/Holm House, & more) and Parola (Holy Cross Church & Parola Tank Museum).
