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've added Swedish Theater (Svenska Teatern), Old Market Hall, Food Tours, and other attractions to your itinerary. Do your shopping at Hakaniemi Market and Stockmann's Department Store. Stromforsin ruukki and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Helsinki to go to Kotka and see Linden Esplanade, which is approximately 2 hours away. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, look for gifts at Taiga Colors, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
