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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ullanlinna, The Esplanadi Park and Senate Square. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Room Escape Games and Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), admire the striking features of Rock Church, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
