Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna capture your imagination. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Venture out of the city with trips to Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo), Helsinki (Katajanokka & Kansallisgalleria) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), don't miss a visit to The Esplanadi Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.
