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.
Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Sibelius Hall in Lahti--about 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach.
