Kick off your visit on the 4th (Fri): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and then step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. On the 5th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), don't miss a visit to Senate Square, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, then get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
