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.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Thu): contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, then learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and finally browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, then get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, then pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and finally admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station.
