Helsinki ©
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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Teijo national park and Valkmusa National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
