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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Aalto House will appeal to history buffs. Appreciate the collections at Mannerheim Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka), Brunberg Candy Factory Shop (in Porvoo) and Hamina (St. John's Church & Marian Kirkko). There's much more to do: look for gifts at Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa), admire the masterpieces at Galerie Anhava, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market.
