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 Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). The adventure continues: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
