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 discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Kotka Church, & more). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Fortress of Suomenlinna, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church.
