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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Nuuksio National Park and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Teijo National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Heureka (in Vantaa), Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Sapokka Water Garden) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, &more). And it doesn't end there: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, walk around Kaivopuisto, shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
