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 some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, stop by Katajanokka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukio Church, and explore the world behind art at Didrichsen Art Museum.
