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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Swedish Theater (Svenska Teatern), Old Market Hall, Cathedral of Porvoo, and other attractions. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Do your shopping at Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatori.

Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), buy something for everyone on your list at Stockmann Department Store, and steep yourself in history at Urho Kekkonen Museum Tamminiemi.
