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.
Do your shopping at Market Square Kauppatori and Taiga Colors. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Tapiola Golf. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), wander the streets of Katajanokka, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
