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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Riimikko, & more) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Linden Esplanade). The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and browse the range of quality goods at Stockmann's Department Store.
