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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, &more) and Heureka (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, and steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum.
