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.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Stockmann Department Store. Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Riimikko, &more), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Linden Esplanade) and Ruotsinpyhtaa (Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa & Stromforsin Ruukki). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori.

For more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki itinerary planning tool.
