Helsinki

— 7 nights

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Get a sense of the local culture at Temppeliaukio Church and Cathedral of Porvoo. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo--about 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
