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.
Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and Stromforsin ruukki. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Finland, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum.

To find maps, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki planner .
