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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Teijo national park and Stromforsin ruukki. Step out of the city life by going to Santalahti Nature Trail and Arboretum Mustila. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and admire the masterpieces at Design Museum.
