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 discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sapokka Water Garden. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, & more), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka). Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, stroll around Kaivopuisto, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
