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.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll explore and learn at Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Palander House (in Hameenlinna), Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island) and Spas (in Tampere). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, walk around The Esplanadi Park, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
