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). Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 46 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
