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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Mannerheim Museum and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Cathedral of Porvoo and The Aalto House will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, wander the streets of Katajanokka, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
