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.
Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Finnish Aviation Museum capture your imagination. Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Brunberg Candy Factory Shop. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Heureka (in Vantaa), Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
