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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bellevue Beach and Linden Esplanade. You'll get in some beach time at Beach Mansikkalahti and Aurinkolahti Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Riihimaki (Suomen Lasimuseo (The Finnish Glass Museum) & Riihimaki Art Museum), Parola Tank Museum (in Parola) and Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum). And it doesn't end there: browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take an in-depth tour of Ekenas Museum, examine the collection at Motorcycle Museum of Finland, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
