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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). There's lots more to do: shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, and kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach.
