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.
Popular historic sites such as Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church are in your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Kotka Church, Beach Mansikkalahti, & more), Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take a stroll through Katajanokka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki journey maker website .
