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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Explore hidden gems such as Hakaniemi Market and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi), Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg) and Porvoo (Riimikko & Porvoo Old Town). Pack the 23rd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki online journey planner.
