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 off the beaten path and head to Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) and Kansallisgalleria. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The National Museum of Finland and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Tuusula (Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) & Lotta Museum), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Cross Church, stroll around Sibelius Monument, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Paavalin Church (Paavalin Kirkko).
