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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.

To see photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki itinerary builder site.
