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.
Get outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Tapiola Golf. Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Stadin Panimo.
