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 46 minutes away. Pack the 12th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
