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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Johannes Church, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
