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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Turku (Turku Castle & Bike Rental - by Carfield) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.
