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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Turku Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Birthplace of Jean Sibelius (in Hameenlinna). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Naantali Old Town, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Porvoo.
