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 Art Gallery Merila. Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Hameenlinnan Kaupungin Raatihuonefor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Raseborg (Raseborg Castle, EKTA museum, &more), Kirkkonummi (Kirkkonummen kirkko & Hvittrask) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach, Pike's Gut, &more).
