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 Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Sapokka Water Garden, & more). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Sibelius Monument, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
