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.
Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Hameenlinna (Ahvenisto & Palander House) and Turku (St Henry's Ecumenical Art Chappel & Turku Castle). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.
