Helsinki

— 4 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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 discover tucked-away gems like Kallio Church and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Haapasaari Island) and Loviisan kirkko (in Loviisa). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Senate Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
