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.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Nasin Kartanon Galleria. Family-friendly places like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Vantaa (Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto & Heureka), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, &more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and get engrossed in the history at Finnish Aviation Museum.
