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 a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the exciting artwork at ARTag Gallery, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
