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 get in some beach time at Bellevue Beach and Lehman. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Inkoon kirkko (in Inkoo) and Porvoo (Castle Hill, Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, & more). The adventure continues: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Johannes Church.
