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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park will get you outdoors. Step out of Helsinki to go to Siltakyla and see Valkmusa National Park, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
