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.
Step out of the city life by going to Korkeasaari Zoo and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 46 minutes away. Pack the 23rd (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, admire the striking features of Rock Church, browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
