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.
When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately 48 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
