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 Valkmusa National Park. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Lehman), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). Pack the 12th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church.
