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.
Step out of the city life by going to Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Sibelius Hall in Lahti (about 1h 45 min away). There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, make a trip to Old Market Hall, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and perfect your strike at Flamingo Entertainment Center.
