Helsinki ©
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 Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
