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.
Head to Sibelius Hall and Old Market Hallfor some retail therapy. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kokonniemi (in Porvoo), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, look for gifts at Marimekko, and stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach.
