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.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bellevue Beach and Arboretum Mustila. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). Next up on the itinerary: browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
