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.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo will get you outdoors. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Ullanlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and stop by Marimekko.
