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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and National Museum of Finland. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, admire the masterpieces at Design Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
