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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Rock Church and Katajanokka. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, make a trip to Senate Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki day trip planning website .
