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.
Shop till you drop at Old Market Hall and Artisaani. Visit Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa), Gumbostrand Konst & Form (in Sipoo) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop & Taidetehdas - Culture and Congress Center). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the exciting artwork at Galerie Forsblom.
