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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, admire the masterpieces at Alvar Aalto's studio, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
