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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Teijo national park and Kansallisgalleria. Popular historic sites such as Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are in your itinerary. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Raseborg to see Ekenas Archipelago National Park about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and contemplate the long history of Fortress of Suomenlinna.
