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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Take a break from the city and head to Bellevue Beach and Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Beach Mansikkalahti (in Kotka) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
