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 Porvoo Old Town. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden, Linden Esplanade, &more), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, browse the exhibits of Mannerheim Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
