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 Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. The adventure continues: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
