Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Do your shopping at Hakaniemi Market and Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Porvoo (Castle Hill, Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, &more). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Johannes Church, and head off the coast to Lehman.
