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 Kansallisgalleria and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna capture your imagination. Escape the urban bustle at Teijo National Park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: trek along Tulliniemi Nature Path, explore the world behind art at Design Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
