Helsinki

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Cathedral of Porvoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Runeberg Park & Porvoo Old Town), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Sapokka Water Garden). And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Johannes Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukio Church, and get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland.
