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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Valkmusa National Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, & more), Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Sapokka Water Garden) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, look for gifts at Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa), steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, and hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market.
