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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park will get you outdoors. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Porvoo (Runeberg Park, Castle Hill, & more). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, explore the galleries of Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum, steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park.
