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.
Visit Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park for their historical value. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti & Linden Esplanade), Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre (in Vantaa) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
