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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) will appeal to museum buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop and Hakaniemi Market. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, see the interesting displays at Mannerheim Museum, make a trip to Maternal Love Sculpture (Aidinrakkaus), and stop by Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa).

To find where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, read our Helsinki holiday planner.
