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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and King's Road. Change things up with a short trip to Teijo national park in Pernio (about 1h 50 min away). Next up on the itinerary: hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, stop by Artisaani, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
