Helsinki

Helsinki ©
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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Bellevue Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Heureka (in Vantaa) and Inkoon kirkko (in Inkoo). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, get in on the family fun at Linnanmaki Amusement Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Helsinki trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
