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.
Head to Temppeliaukion Church and Market Square Kauppatorifor plenty of shopping. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kamppi Shopping Centre will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Raseborg (Raseborg Castle, EKTA museum, & more), Kirkkonummi (Kirkkonummen kirkko & Hvittrask) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach, Pike's Gut, & more). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, wander the streets of Linden Esplanade, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the exciting artwork at Art Gallery Merila.
