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.
Visit Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Ullanlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Aurlahti Beach in Lohja, about 50 minutes away. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, get a taste of the local shopping with Flamingo Entertainment Centre, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take a stroll through Design District.
