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.
On the 27th (Fri), take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, then learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, then wander the streets of Katajanokka, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Here are some ideas for day two: learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and finally get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
