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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Pohjolan toimitalo. Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and ARTag Gallery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: The Finnish Railway Museum (in Hyvinkaa), Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa) and Suomen Lasimuseo (The Finnish Glass Museum) (in Riihimaki). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, get a taste of the local shopping with Galleria Lapinlahti, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
