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.
Explore hidden gems such as Katajanokka and The Aalto House. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Venture out of the city with trips to Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka), Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop & Cathedral of Porvoo) and Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala).
