Helsinki

— 4 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to The National Museum of Finland and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
