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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma (Nykytaiteen Museo). Venture out of the city with trips to Haapasaari Island (in Kotka), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and make a trip to Senate Square.
