Museum-lovers will get to explore Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Katajanokka and Hakaniemi Market. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the exciting artwork at Galerie Anhava.
