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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. We've included these beaches for you: Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get outside with Haagan Alppiruusupuisto, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and take in the pleasant sights at Uutelan luontopolku.
