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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, make a trip to Senate Square, steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and stroll through The Esplanadi Park.
