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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Head to Hakaniemi Market and Okrafor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kinnarin Tila & Pioni Ja Piironki (in Hollola), Porvoo (Willatar, Pieni Suklaatehdas, &more) and Lahti (Musical Fountain & Sibelius Hall). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, and contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
