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 The Esplanadi Park will appeal to history buffs. Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, get interesting insight from Tours, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
