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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church will appeal to history buffs. Museum-lovers will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Forum Marinum Maritime Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Turku (Turku Cathedral, Turku Castle, &more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Tampereen Tuomiokirkko, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, and take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland.
