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.
Kids will enjoy Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and have fun at Olympic Stadium (Olympiastadion).
