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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Nuuksio National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, & more), Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Sapokka Water Garden, & more) and Heureka (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, take a stroll through Katajanokka, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

For maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, use the Helsinki trip maker site .
