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.
Visiting Aurlahti Beach and Arboretum Mustila will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and The Aalto House. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Porvoo (The Devil's Stairs, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more) and Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Maritime Centre Vellamo). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Katajanokka, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and admire the striking features of Johannes Church.
