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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Room Escape Games and Aurinkolahti Beach. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
