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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church. Museum-lovers will get to explore Fortress of Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town), Forssa Museum (in Forssa) and Jokioinen Museum Railway (in Jokioinen). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), take a stroll through Stromforsin ruukki, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
