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 a sense of the local culture at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll get in some beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Serena Water Park). There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, look for gifts at Marimekko, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and relax and rejuvenate at Flamingo Entertainment Centre.
