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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with a short trip to Teijo national park in Pernio (about 1h 50 min away). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), admire the striking features of Pohjolan toimitalo, and stroll through Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail.
