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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Museum-lovers will get to explore Turku Castle and Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka), Turku (Turku Cathedral, Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, & more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Johannes Church, and get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland.
