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.
Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna capture your imagination. For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Riimikko. Venture out of the city with trips to Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Lehman, & more) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).
