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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Teijo national park in Pernio, about 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, wander the streets of Katajanokka, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre.
