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.
Visit Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna for their historical value. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's lots more to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, admire the natural beauty at Observatory Hill Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
