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 Temppeliaukio Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Nuuksio National Park. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Heureka (in Vantaa) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Brunberg Candy Factory Shop). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, look for gifts at CraftCorner, and contemplate the long history of Pohjolan toimitalo.
