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 some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Step out of the city life by going to Korkeasaari Zoo and Hietaranta Beach. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 46 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church and step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.
