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 Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and Nuuksio National Park. For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Brunberg Candy Factory Shop. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo), Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, and look for gifts at Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa).

For reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki day trip planning app .
