Helsinki

— 5 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mannerheim Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Ruotsinpyhtaa (Stromforsin Ruukki & Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Kallio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.
