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.
You'll explore and learn at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). And it doesn't end there: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Finland.
