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.
Kids will enjoy Heureka and Hietaranta Beach. Head to Hakaniemi Market and Galerie Anhavafor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, & more), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Sapokka Water Garden). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Katajanokka, expand your understanding of the military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church.
