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 outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Adventure Park Zippy. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Katajanokka and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Espoo (Arctic Expedition & Kaitalampi), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, head outdoors with Haagan Alppiruusupuisto, and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.
