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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.
