Helsinki ©
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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nuuksio National Park and Porvoo Old Town. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa, about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, expand your understanding of the military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.
