Helsinki

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Get a sense of the local culture at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) and The National Museum of Finland. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Holy Cross Church (in Parola), Forssa Museum (in Forssa) and Ruotsinpyhtaa (Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa & Stromforsin Ruukki). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Maritime Centre Vellamo, admire the masterpieces at Design Museum, take an in-depth tour of Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum, and don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town.
