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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Temppeliaukion Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Katajanokka, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, get your game on at True VR, and steep yourself in history at The Aalto House.

To find maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki journey planner .
