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 Aalto House. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) and Mannerheim Museum. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Heureka (in Vantaa), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, &more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, make a trip to SkyWheel Helsinki, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
