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.
The Aalto House and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Bellevue Beach.
