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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) and Mannerheim Museum. The Runeberg Home and Cathedral of Porvoo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Pieni Suklaatehdas, Porvoo Old Town, &more). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of St Henry, stop by Kankurin Tupa, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and walk around The Esplanadi Park.
