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.
Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Kamppi Chapel of Silence. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, get your game on at Helkatti, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
