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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Fagervik Museum.
