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.
Visit Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach for some beach relaxation. Get in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Korkeasaari Zoo. Step out of Helsinki to go to Siltakyla and see Valkmusa National Park, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
