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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Cathedral of Porvoo. Let the collections at Kansallisgalleria and Sinebrychoff Art Museum capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Brunberg Candy Factory Shop), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
