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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Porvoo Old Town and The National Museum of Finland. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Turku Castle (in Turku) and Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower (in Tampere). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market.
