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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, make a trip to Senate Square, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
