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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Cathedral of Porvoo and Temppeliaukion Church. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nuuksio National Park and Maritime Centre Vellamo. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Runeberg Park & Porvoo Old Town), Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka) and St Michael Church (in Pernaja). There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, and contemplate the long history of The Aalto House.
