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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kamppi Chapel of Silence will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Raseborg (Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen & Ekenas Archipelago National Park) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

To see photos, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary planner.
