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.
Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park will appeal to history buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Serena Water Park). Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo.
