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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala), Turku (Turku Castle & Turku Cathedral) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Johannes Church, contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, and see the interesting displays at Design Museum.
