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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Turku Castle and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Get outdoors at Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and Bellevue Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Turku (Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova & Turun Kauppahalli) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Katajanokka, contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and shop like a local with Galerie Anhava.
