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.
Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. Museum-lovers will get to explore Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Castle Hill (in Porvoo), Hanko Water Tower (in Hanko) and Kotka (Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum, Kotka Church, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and examine the collection at Helsinki University Museum (Helsingin Yliopiston Museo).
