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.
Kids will enjoy Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
