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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Hakaniemi Market and Jumbo Shopping Center. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Nasin Kartanon Galleria (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: stop by Katajanokka, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
