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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Evo Hiking Area. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Vantaa (Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto & Heureka). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Katajanokka, brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila.
