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.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Kauppatori. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Porvoo (Willatar & Kokonniemi) and Nuuksio National Park (Nuuksion Kansallispuisto) (in Southern Finland). The adventure continues: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, meet the residents at Helsinki Zoo, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.
