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.
Do your shopping at Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatori. Popular historic sites such as Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are in your itinerary. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Lahti (Lahti Sports Center & Sibelius Hall) and Holy Cross Church (in Parola). There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, wander the streets of Linden Esplanade, and stop by Marimekko.
