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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Market Square Kauppatori and ARTag Gallery. Popular historic sites such as Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are in your itinerary. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre.
