Daughter of the Baltic

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 Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach will get you outdoors. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa, about 30 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
