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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Museum-lovers will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Runeberg Park (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
