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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Katariina Seaside Park, Sapokka Water Garden, & more), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 3rd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
