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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) and The National Museum of Finland. Kansallisgalleria and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo) and Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and stroll around Sibelius Monument.
