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 Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Do your shopping at Sibelius Hall and Old Market Hall. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, enjoy some friendly competition at Flamingo Entertainment Centre, stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, and look for gifts at Marimekko.
