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 a sense of the local culture at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Teijo national park and Valkmusa National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, and stop by Taiga Colors.
