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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Helsinki Cathedral and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll discover tucked-away gems like The Esplanadi Park and Ainola (Jean Sibelius House). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi), Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Loviisan kirkko (in Loviisa), Raseborg (Raseborg Castle & Ekenas Archipelago National Park) and Haemeenlinna (Hame Castle & Museo Militaria). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, steep yourself in history at Urho Kekkonen Museum Tamminiemi, and pause for some serene contemplation at Kallio Church.
