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 Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Let the collections at Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo and ARTag Gallery capture your imagination. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Suomen Lasimuseo (The Finnish Glass Museum) (in Riihimaki), Hyvinkaa (The Finnish Railway Museum & Hyvinkään kaupunginmuseo) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, Porvoo Old Town, & more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, stop by Artisaani, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
