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.
Pack the 21st (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

Make your Helsinki itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Kuusamo is a town and municipality in Finland. Explore Kuusamo's surroundings by going to Pieni Karhunkierros Trail (in Juuma) and Korouoma Canyon (in Posio). The adventure continues: get outside with Karhunkierros, explore the striking landscape at Julma Olkky, get a taste of life in the country at Kujala Reindeer Farm, and explore the world behind art at Hannu Hautala Nature Photography Centre.
