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.
You'll get in some beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Lehman. Get some historical perspective at Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka).
