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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nuuksio National Park and The National Museum of Finland. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach.
