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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, stop by Katajanokka, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.
