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 Helsinki Cathedral. Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Home of Aleksis Kivi (in Nurmijarvi). Pack the 13th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, walk around The Esplanadi Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
