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 Market Square Kauppatori. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Stromforsin ruukki and Sibelius Hall. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg), Pioni Ja Piironki (in Hollola) and Parola (Parola Tank Museum & Holy Cross Church). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
