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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo.
