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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Turku Castle (in Turku) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori.
