Helsinki

Helsinki ©
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Room Escape Games and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Castle Hill & Porvoo Old Town). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
