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 some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Rock Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.
