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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and Stromforsin ruukki. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi). Next up on the itinerary: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
