If you have only a few days to spend in Finland and arrive in Helsinki I would recommend you a day trip to historic Porvoo. There is no knowledge when Porvoo got its town rights, but it must have been in mid 14th century, which makes Porvoo the second oldest town/city in Finland after Turku. The population is abt 46.000 of whom 64% are Finnish speaking, 34% Swedish speaking and the remaining 2% speak other languages as their mother tongue.
These red boat sheds seem to be some kind of symbol of Porvoo, at least you see them in all the tourist brochures.
This reminds me of my childhood in the 50's more travel advice
