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 outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Valkmusa National Park. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 48 minutes away. The adventure continues: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip planner.
