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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Teijo National Park and Aurlahti Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Katajanokka, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
