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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Johannes Church. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cathedral of Porvoo and Mannerheim Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Porvoo (The Devil's Stairs, Castle Hill, &more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), examine the collection at Maritime Centre Vellamo, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
