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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Heureka. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), make a splash at The Swimming Stadium, and walk around Korkeasaari Zoo.
