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.
Get some cultural insight at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Design Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
