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.
Get some cultural insight at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Helsinki Cathedral. Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Stromforsin ruukki. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). There's more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna and admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church.
