Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Nasin Kartanon Galleria. Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Hameenlinnan Kaupungin Raatihuonefor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Kirkkonummi (Kirkkonummen kirkko & Hvittrask), Hanko (Bellevue Beach, Pike's Gut, &more) and Raseborg (Raseborg Castle, EKTA museum, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
