Helsinki

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Ankkapurha Cultural Parkfor plenty of shopping. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Turku (Turun Taidehalli, Turun Kauppahalli, &more), Lahti (Sibelius Hall & Musical Fountain) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop & Nasin Kartanon Galleria). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and browse the different shops at Kamppi Shopping Centre.
