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.
Head to Old Market Hall and Marimekko Oyjfor some retail therapy. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Temppeliaukio Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, visit Ullanlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.

To see photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip planner.
