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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Turku Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Maritime Centre Vellamo), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, &more) and Turku (Turku City Library, Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Nuuksio National Park, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
