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.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Sat): take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, stroll through Hietaranta Beach, then wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and then brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
