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 Nuuksio National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Maritime Centre Vellamo) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Runeberg Park, & more). There's much more to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and admire the striking features of The National Library of Finland.
