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 Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukion Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), wander the streets of Katajanokka, and look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila.
