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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Head to Hakaniemi Market and Sibelius Hallfor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Lahti Ski Museum (in Lahti). Pack the 31st (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park.
