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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Kansallisgalleria. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and explore the world behind art at Design Museum.

To find photos, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary planner .
