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.
Escape the urban bustle at Tulliniemi Nature Path and Nuuksio National Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Raseborg (Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen & Ekenas Archipelago National Park) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki online day trip planner .
