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 in touch with nature at Arboretum Mustila and Teijo National Park. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Vantaa (Heureka & Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto), Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at The Aalto House, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Sinebrychoff Art Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
