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 Arboretum Mustila and Bellevue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop & Cathedral of Porvoo). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market.

For photos and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online tour itinerary planner.
