Helsinki

Helsinki ©
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.
Shop till you drop at Old Market Hall and Marimekko Oyj. Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, look for gifts at Marimekko, tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
