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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Raseborg (Ekenas Museum & Raseborg Castle) and Parola (Parola Tank Museum & Holy Cross Church). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
