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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ullanlinna. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
