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.
Take a break from the city and head to Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Appreciate the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.
