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 in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Get some cultural insight at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, examine the collection at Design Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kotka Church.
