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 get in some beach time at Bellevue Beach and Aijanniemi Beach. Popular historic sites such as Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sibelius Hall (in Lahti), Fagervik Church (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Kotka Church, Beach Mansikkalahti, & more). And it doesn't end there: browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, stop by Artisaani, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
