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.
Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temppeliaukion Church and Cathedral of Porvoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
