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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Kansallisgalleria and Mannerheim Museum. Explore hidden gems such as Katajanokka and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Castle Hill, &more) and Loviisan kirkko (in Loviisa). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, make a trip to Hakaniemi Market, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
