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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hameenlinna (Ahvenisto & Palander House), Porvoo (Söderskärin majakka & Porvoo Old Town) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). On the 29th (Sun), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Mielakka Ski Center. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland.
