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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatori. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bellevue Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi), Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, get into the urban bustle at Sibelius Hall, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
