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 some historical perspective at Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park. Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, cool off at The Swimming Stadium, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
