Imatra

Imatra ©
Although predominately an industrial town, Imatra boasts a long and impressive history of tourism, largely owing to its fierce rapids, considered to have been Finland's first ever tourist attraction.
Escape the urban bustle at Repovesi National Park and Imatra Waterfall. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lappeenranta Fortress and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. Get out of town with these interesting Imatra side-trips: Lappeenranta (Sandcastle Lappeenranta, Lappeenrannan kirkko, &more) and Hevoshaan Arboretum (in Kouvola). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Imatrankoski Church, step off the mainland to explore Lammassaari Island, and get outside with Atreenalin Seikkailupuistot.

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Teijo National Park and Laajalahti Nature Reserve. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Johannes Church.

And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, steep yourself in history at The Aalto House, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and make a trip to Hakaniemi Market.
