Helsinki

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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum 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: Porvoo (Castle Hill, Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, &more), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
