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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka). Spend the 10th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
