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 Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Boss Shop. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, look for gifts at Marimekko, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
