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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Turku Castle. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum will get you outdoors. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Turku Cathedral (in Turku) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, and explore the world behind art at Design Museum.
