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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Arboretum Mustila. Visit Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral for their historical value. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
