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.
Head to Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatorifor some retail therapy. Get outdoors at Teijo national park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
