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.
Explore hidden gems such as Room Escape Games and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum & Kotka Church), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market.
