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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sibelius Monument. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka). Pack the 19th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).
