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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Spas & Wellness. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) will appeal to museum buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park, Kaitalampi, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
