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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Change things up with a short trip to Arctic Expedition in Espoo (about 36 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, trek along Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, sample the tasty concoctions at Stadin Panimo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
