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.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Galerie Forsblomfor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop & Riimikko) and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, make a trip to Senate Square, shop like a local with ARTag Gallery, and get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland.
