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.
Visiting Korkeasaari Zoo and Hietaranta Beach will get you outdoors. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. There's more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church and enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach.
