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 in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Laajalahti Nature Reserve. Do some cultural sightseeing at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka), Porvoo (Kokonniemi, Runeberg Park, & more) and Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, let little ones run wild at Hiidenlinna & Sisumetsan Seikkailupuisto, and explore the galleries of Mannerheim Museum.

For ratings, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip planning app .
