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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop & Riimikko). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Market Square Kauppatori, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
