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.
Step out of the city life by going to Korkeasaari Zoo and Nuuksio National Park. Appreciate the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla, approximately 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach.
